Bedroom Stories

Indira lives in one room with her family near Kathmandu. She works five or six hours a day at the local granite quarry.

Kaya lives with her parents in a small apartement in Tokyo. Her father is a railway worker and her mother makes all her dresses, three a month!

Tzvika wants to become a rabbi when he is older and his favourite food is schnittzel and fries.

This unnamed four-year-old boy lives on the outskirts of Rome, Italy. He and his family all sleep on the mattress in the photograph, his parents clean car windscreens at traffic lights.
Eight-year-old Harrison lives in a mansion in New Jersey, USA

'Where Children Sleep' is a collection of James Mollison's photographs of childrens' bedrooms from around the world.
This book wants to help children think about inequality, within and between societies around the world, says Mollison.

At the present moment Mollison is working on the exhibition of the project with Fabrica, and the audiences of Rome and Milano's train stations will be provided with these galleries in November 2010.
