Typically, when we think of a child's bedroom we think of heaps of brightly colored stuffed animals. A cozy little bed with warm blankets and pillows. We think of storybooks and all the comforts we would afford ourselves.
In his photo book photographer James Mollison he captures the joys of life as child in parts of the world with financial and political stability. He shows the drastic differences between cultures and religions. He also shows the reality of the bedrooms of children in less fortunate circumstances. The book features an image of a child, their bedroom, and a description of their life.
Some of the squalid conditions in which children exist is unimaginable for many of us. The reality the images depict is quite shocking and powerful for someone who is far removed from the situation.
The series is powerful and captivating. You can check out more of the images here
