Where Children Sleep

I have been so moved and heart-broken by this very touching photo book by James Mollison called James Mollison: Where Children Sleep.  You'll be hard-pressed to find something more intimate than these telling pictures of the sometimes adequate, sometimes opulent, and the all too often squalid spaces children all across the globe lay there heads at night.

If you'd like to take a look before you buy (which you WILL want to buy after previewing this book, I guarantee you!), please go here.  You can view the entire book, page-by-page and even click on the images to make it easier to read the stories that go along with each child.

Every child featured has a head shot and short story about their life that accompanies the picture of their "bedroom" (in some cases, nothing more than a pile of old tires or an abandoned couch on a street corner).  This is all in stark contrast to the children who live in 5th Avenue, New York apartments where no expense is spared.

Here are a few images from this amazing book:

Please visit James Mollison: Where Children Sleep to purchase this book; it will NOT disappoint.

Sweet Dreams,
