Where Children Sleep: A Poignant Photo Series

While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about. — Angela Schwindt

Inspiration of the Day:
‘Where Children Sleep’ is a remarkable series capturing the diversity of and, often, disparity between children’s lives around the world through portraits of their bedrooms. Kenyan-born, English-raised, Venice-based documentary photographer James Mollison explores the topic with poignancy. The project began on a brief to engage with children’s rights and morphed into a thoughtful meditation on poverty and privilege, its 56 images spanning from the stone quarries of Nepal to the farming provinces of China to the silver spoons of Fifth Avenue. “From the start, I didn’t want it just to be about ‘needy children’ in the developing world, but rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations. It seemed to make sense to photograph the children themselves, too, but separately from their bedrooms, using a neutral background,” says Mollison, whose touching photos follow. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4726
