21 Images of Where Children Sleep Around the World Paints a Powerful Picture of Inequality

“As a child, that’s your little space within the house,” said James Mollison, a Kenyan-born, England-raised, Venice-based photographer whose 2011 photo book, Where Children Sleep draws attention to a child’s “material and cultural circumstances” and offers a remarkable view on class, poverty, and the diversity of children around the world.

After spending more than three years traveling the world from Senegal to Tokyo, Mollison’s series include portraits of children in front of a white background accompanied by a single snapshot of their bedrooms, leaving the later to speak volumes about their the social and cultural circumstances that contribute to their lifestyle.

“I hope the book gives a a glimpse into the lives some children are living in very diverse situations around the world; a chance to reflect on the inequality that exists, and realize just how lucky most of us in the developed world are,” said Mollison.

Documenting his series in a book called Where Children Sleep, these striking images range from a mattress outside Rome to a bedroom filled with crowns and sashes. The book was, interestingly enough, written and designed for 9 to 13 year olds to learn about and better understand the diversity and disparity among children in the world. However, it has also proven to be an important photography series for adults. It’s not just as an empathy tool; it’s an insightful commentary on poverty, privilege, and human rights.
