These 20 powerful photos of kids’ bedrooms will change the way you look at the world

Facebook

Where Children Sleep is a powerful photo series by English photographer James Mollison. He traveled around the world capturing the differences between the lifestyle of kids from different countries. The discrepancy is quite shocking, as in the series you will find photos of children like Kaya from Tokyo, whose mother spends more than $1.000 a month on her dresses, as well as photos of kids from Brazil or Nepal that barely have a roof over their heads.

Save the Children Italy supported the two year long process needed to complete this series that now is also available as a book, where each portrait and bedroom photos are accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child.
If you are interested in the book this is the Amazon link, while if you want to see some other work by James Mollison here’s his personal website: jamesmollison.com.

    Pretty fascinating. Things don’t seem too great in Brazil, among other places. At the same time, these photos make some of these rooms look pretty cool. Reminds me of places people would go “glamping”. And Japan is so odd.

    That some in this modern age should live in such abject poverty is utterly lamentable! Meanwhile, there are many who haven’t bought enough gucci and prada “butt labels” or whatever the current fashion fad or fashion trend is!
