These Photos of Children and Their Bedrooms Around The World Will Surely Move You

These Photos of Children and Where They Sleep Around the World Show Eye-Opening Disparities

We take a lot of things for granted. We complain. We whine, especially as kids. We have not enough gadgets. We were not given enough time to play. We are being told to do chores. Our parents did not buy us that expensive toy we wanted for our birthday. We sometimes even wish we have a life much more different than the ones we have for our own, not really realizing that there are people who would give anything just to be in our position. Some people would die for what we have.

Inequality no doubt still exists and it will keep on existing because of selfishness and greed that people who belong to the less than 10% of the world’s wealthy population.

Kenyan-born, England-raised, Venice-based photographer James Mollison has traveled around the globe and was able to capture snapshots of children and the places they call and consider their bedrooms.

In his eye-opening series, Where Children Sleep, he let the photos speak volumes for themselves and make a point in showing a remarkable view on diversity of children in different social classes around the world.

The series exhibited portraits of children and the respective places they spend their nights on. It ranged from high-class bedrooms to outdoor scenes that will leave people in shock.
