Children Around the World

     Photographer James Mollison captures the lives of children and teenagers around the world in his book, 'Where Children Sleep'. The book contains images of four- to seventeen-year-olds and pictures of their bedrooms. I won't add too much text, letting the photos speak for themselves.

Thais, 11, lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She wants to be a model when she grows up.

Prena, 14, lives in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she works as a domestic worker. She makes the equivalent of $6.50 a month, goes to school three days a week, and dreams of being a doctor.

Lamine, 12, lives in Senegal. He spends many hours each day working on his school's farm, but he also has time to play sports with his friends. This is one of my favorite photos because you can see books in it.

Kaya, 4, lives in Tokyo, Japan. Her mother spends over $1,000 a month on her clothes and toys.

Irkena, 14, lives in a semi-nomadic tribe in Kenya.
