" Where Children Sleep" by James Mollison

How do you photograph an abstract concept like 'children's right'? This was the question that lead to James  Mollison's latest project, in which he combines portraits of children from all over the world with photographs of the spaces where they sleep. As you will see the contrast between each of the 'bedrooms' is quite significant.
James Mollison was born in Kenya in 1973 and grew up in England. His work has been widely published throughout the world in The Paris Review, The New York Times, Le Monde, The Guardian and more. Photographed over two years with the support of Save the Children (Italy), Where Children Sleep is both a serious photo-essay for an adult audiance, and also an educational book that engages children themselves in the lives of other children around the world. Each pair of photograph is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child.
