Where Children Sleep Around the World

Published 4 years ago

English photographer James Mollison traveled around the world photographing children and their bedrooms – or, in some cases, simply places where they get to crash. The striking pictures were published in a book titled Where Children Sleep revealing shocking differences across countries, going from girls with thousand dollar dresses in their private mansions to shepherd boys sleeping with goats.

“I hope the book gives a a glimpse into the lives some children are living in very diverse situations around the world; a chance to reflect on the inequality that exists, and realise just how lucky most of us in the developed world are,” says James.

Would you trade your bed with one of these?
