Where Children Sleep: Photographs by James Mollison
Photographer James Mollison’s breathtaking photography series, Where Children Sleep, captures deeply personal portraits of children from around the world, alongside images of where they sleep each night. The photographs are arresting in the shocking disparity they portray. The viewer is also reminded of the vulnerability of all children, and their need for safe, stable and nurturing environments. So much of these children’s experiences, their daily lives, and their most quiet moments before drifting into sleep are shaped by their circumstances and by conditions beyond their control. The environments in which they are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, age, and sleep affect a wide range of health functioning and quality of life outcomes and risks that affect their entire lives.
