Tuck Me In

We have all seen the galling pictures of poor children in underdeveloped countries around the world, and perhaps we have become inured to their connections with real, everyday life. Photographer James Mollison has seen something else through his lens and it gets behind the stereotypical shots of poverty and privilege. His recently released book, Where Children Sleep, introduces us to children around the world and their most intimate corners of privacy . . . or lack of it, as the case may be.

Kerri MacDonald in The New York Times writes a short review, providing a slideshow of some of Mollison’s work. It would be well worth your time to take a peek, enlarging the screen if you can. Click here.
