Synopsis

Where Children Sleep by James Mollison

Where Children Sleep presents Mollison's large format photographs of children's bedrooms around the world - including from the USA, Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel and theWest Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India - alongside portraits of the children whose bedrooms are featured. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells of the story of the child in question - about Kaya in Tokyo whose proud mother spends $1000 per month on her dresses; about Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy who sleeps out with his father's herd of goats; about the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three years old, and about Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle. Photographed over two years with the support of Save the Children, the book is written and presented for an audience of 7-11 year olds - setting out to interest and engage children in the details of the lives of other children around the world, and the social issues affecting them, while also being a serious photographic essay for an adult audience. Its striking design features a child's mobile on the cover, printed in glow-in-the-dark ink.
