12 Captivating Pics From The Global Photo Series Showing “Where Children Sleep”

Published 10 months ago

English-born photographer, James Mollison, created the book “Where Children Sleep” with the intention of giving his readers a glimpse of the inequalities faced by children from different parts of the world, by showing the differences between their bedrooms. 

The project aims to capture the vast differences between each child’s circumstances, from luxurious to destitute. There’s the little girl from Japan whose mom spends $1000 dollars on dresses monthly and then there’s another little girl from Nepali who has slept in a granary since she was three years old. 

Published in 2010, the book covers living conditions in countries such as; the U.S.A., Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China, as well as India and aims to create a sense of appreciation for those who are privileged to have better conditions and to be aware of the vastly different circumstances people have to live with.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
