Kenyan-born, English-raised, Venice-based documentary photographer James Mollison presents Where Children Sleep — a photo series capturing the disparity between children’s lives around the world through portraits of their bedrooms.
“From the start, I didn’t want it just to be about ‘needy children’ in the developing world, but rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations. It seemed to make sense to photograph the children themselves, too, but separately from their bedrooms, using a neutral background,” says James.
Here’re 20 of the 56 powerful thought-provoking photos that tell you the difference between poverty and privilege…
