16 Children And Their Bedrooms From Across The World. This Truly Opened My Eyes…

 

Some children grow up in poverty, lacking food and sanitation, while others are born in countries where basic necessities are taken for granted.  Photographer James Mollison came up with the project when he thought about his own childhood bedroom and how it reflected who he was. Where Children Sleep – a collection of stories about children from around the world told through portraits of their bedrooms – stemmed from his ideas.

I’m shocked by how differently children start their lives in this world. All of them deserve a chance, but some will never get one due to the harsh environments they’re raised in. Those of us who were fortunate in our youth should help everyone have the same opportunities we did when we grew up.
