Not Everyone Has a Bedroom

Aidan’s reading assignment today involved a book that showed photographs of different kinds of houses from all over the world. Some I coveted (a totally Hansel and Gretel gingerbread-looking house that had a roof with grass growing on it in Germany!) and some made me go…“ooh. Grateful for what I’ve got.

And then, school assignments finished, lunch dishes washed, I went online and saw that several people had linked to this photo essay at Mother Jones, which excerpts photographer James Mollison’s book Where Children Sleep: “Striking and unsentimental, Mollison’s work shows that wherever a child lies down at night is not so much a retreat from as a reflection of the world outside.”

It’s fascinating on multiple levels. Go check it out!
