I just stumbled upon this wonderful book Where Children Sleep by James Mollison .... stories of diverse children around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms .....
James decided a way to address some of the complex situations and social issues affecting children would be to look at the bedrooms of children in all kinds of different circumstances, but he didn't want it just to be about 'needy children' in the developing world, rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations.
The book is written and presented for an audience of 9-13 year olds ' intended to interest and engage children in the details of the lives of other children around the world, while also being a serious photographic essay for an adult audience.
