Where Children Sleep

9-year-old Jamie shares a top-floor apartment on New York’s Fifth Avenue with his parents and three siblings. The family’s two other homes are in Spain and the Hamptons.

14-year-old Prena is a domestic worker in Nepal and lives in a cell-like room in the attic of the house where she works in Katmandu.

Kenyan-born, English-raised, Venice-based documentary photographer James Mollison’s photographs of children and their sleeping arrangements highlights the shocking disparity between the living conditions of children from all over the world. From Fifth Avenue to Katmandu, Mollison’s book, Where Children Sleep, was written and designed as an empathy tool for 9-to-13-year-olds to better understand the lives of other children around the world.
