BIG IDEAS | James Mollison






Realizing the significance of a child’s bedroom in reflecting their individualism, photographer James Mollison embarked on a four-year project to shoot children’s bedrooms around the globe. Where Children Sleep is a collection of portraits and pictures of children between the ages of four and 14 and reflects the stark social and economic differences of kids around the world. The book includes Kaya in Tokyo whose mom spends $1000 a month on dresses; Bilal, the Bedouin sheep herder who sleeps with his father’s goats; and Indira, a Nepalese girl who has worked in the granite quarry since she was three years old.
