Our adopted children all have different beginnings. Some come from impoverished countries, others live in wealthy countries but have had tragic beginnings that left them abandoned and in need of a home. Photographer James Mollison came up with the idea to photograph children’s bedrooms around the world. He photographed bedrooms in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel and the West Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India — alongside portraits of the children themselves.
The book also provides some information about each child’s life. Where Children Sleep is available on Amazon. Below are a few of the pictures from the book.
