“Where Children Sleep” by James Mollison


A friend posted this New York Times “Lens” article on a project by photographer James Mollison. He went across the world and photographed children and their bedrooms. The difference in the lives they lead is amazing. The photographs are well composed and striking without saying a single word.

Here’s what the article’s author, Kari MacDonald, said about the piece:

As much as the project is about the quirkiness of childhood, it is, more strikingly, a commentary on class and on poverty. But the diversity also provides a sense of togetherness.
Everybody sleeps. And eventually, everybody grows up.
