I stumbled upon this article recently, about the book “Where Children Sleep,” by photographer James Mollison.
The idea for the book – taking portraits of children and then photographing their bedrooms – struck me in a powerful way. One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to get inside a local home to see how the locals live.
Taking that even further, by comparing and contrasting children’s bedrooms, adds just that little extra layer of depth to an already intriguing concept.
I haven’t read the book, so I can’t technically review it, but I will say that it appears the author was on a limited budget, because he doesn’t appear to have a lot of diversity between countries.
I would have liked to have seen him get a larger grant and get into far more countries and give us some greater contrast.
Otherwise, fantastic job, great concept, and really visually striking images.
