James Mollison has compiled several photos of children’s bedroom and came up with a photo essay entitled “Where Children Sleep” as reported by several international news sites on Saturday, September 3, 2011.

Based on Mollison‘s official website, “Where Children Sleep” is a compilation of different stories of children around the world that was shown through images of their bedrooms.

The idea of “Where Children Sleep” came out when Save the Children‘s Fabrica asked Mollison to come up with a concept of engaging with children’s rights. Mollison was able to create the idea by thinking about his own bedroom and its significance on his childhood. “I found myself thinking about my bedroom: how significant it was during my childhood, and how it reflected what I had and who I was,” Mollison said. He added that “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.”

The 38-year-old Mollison from Kenya was able to came up with a book with selected diptych’s. The book shows photographs of children and their bedrooms. These children are from the USA, Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel, West Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China, and India. He presented his work to audiences that are 9-13 years old.
