Where Children Sleep – stories of diverse children around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms by James Mollison. When asked to come up with an idea for engaging with children’s rights, James Mollison found himself thinking about his bedroom: how significant it was during his childhood, and how it reflected what he had and who he was.
That’s exactly what Kenyan-born, English-raised, Venice-based documentary photographer James Mollison explores in Where Children Sleep — a remarkable series capturing the diversity of and, often, disparity between children’s lives around the world through portraits of their bedrooms. The project began on a brief to engage with children’s rights and morphed into a thoughtful meditation on poverty and privilege, its 56 images spanning from the stone quarries of Nepal to the farming provinces of China to the silver spoons of Fifth Avenue.
