Where Children Sleep

Where Children Sleep
James Mollison traveled around the globe and took some incredibly eye-opening photos of children's bedrooms. He then compiled them into a book, titled Where Children Sleep. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the child's story. The differences between each sleeping space is striking. Mollison was born in Kenya in 1973 and grew up in England. After studying art and design at Oxford Brookes, and later film and photography at Newport School of Art and Design, he moved to Italy to work at Benetton's creative lab, Fabrica. "The project became a vehicle to think about poverty and wealth, about the relationship of children to their possessions, and the power of children – or lack of it – to make decisions about their lives," says Mollison. Lamine (above), 12, lives in Senegal. Tzvika, nine, lives in an apartment block in Beitar Illit, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Indira, seven, lives with her parents, brother, and sister near Kathmandu in Nepal.
