Portraits Of Children From All Over The World And Where They Sleep

Where Children Sleep is a telling series that explores the various sleeping environments of children from all over the world. Created by photographer James Mollison, the series shows a portrait of each child alongside the space or room they sleep in.

From children surrounded by countless toys and electronics, to the less fortunate who sleep on a hard board, or even outside, the series provides a bit of insight into how different people live all over the world. The photographer has presented the series in a book, featuring the photographs along with the story of each child, available for purchase here
