Where Children Sleep

Bedrooms are significant part for all of us during our childhood and it reflects who we are and what we want to be. Where Children Sleep is a project byJames Mollison with idea to engage young people to understand children’s rights. The bedroom pictures would be inscribed with the children’s material and cultural circumstances, the details that inevitably mark people apart from each other, while the children themselves would appear in the set of portraits as individuals, as equals just as children. After watching these photos you may ask yourself - what was your childhood like?
