James Mollison, from the series Where Children Sleep. Pictures taken around the world of children and their bedrooms.
“Where Children Sleep is about stories of diverse children around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms. I found myself thinking about my bedroom: how significant it was during my childhood, and how it reflected what I had and who I was. My thinking was that the bedroom pictures would be inscribed with the children’s material. The book is written and presented for an audience of 9-13 year olds ‘ intended to interest and engage children in the details of the lives of other children around the world.”
