Where Children Sleep
Photographs By James Mollison

Out of sight, out of mind, the phrase continues to plague my perspective. I suppose that’s why traveling’s so important. A collaborative project between American journalist Chris Booth and photographer James Mollison, Where Children Sleep is a photo exposé aimed to present the differing sleeping spaces of children around the world. Focusing on the realities of inequality, Mollison hopes to compel children to consider inequality as it effects them and their surrounding society. One of the more meaningful projects I’ve come across in a while, Mollison’s photographs paint a reality that is difficult to depict through words. Read on to let Chris Booth and James Mollison show you where children sleep.

Where Children Sleep
Lamine, 12, lives in Senegal. He is a pupil at the village Koranic school, where no girls are allowed. He shares a room with several other boys. The beds are basic, some supported by bricks for legs. At six every morning the boys begin work on the school farm, where they learn how to dig, harvest maize and plough the fields using donkeys. In the afternoon they study the Koran. In his free time Lamine likes to play football with his friends.

Where Children Sleep
Tzvika, nine, lives in an apartment block in Beitar Illit, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. It is a gated community of 36,000 Haredi (Orthodox) Jews. Televisions and newspapers are banned from the settlement. The average family has nine children, but Tzvika has only one sister and two brothers, with whom he shares his room. He is taken by car to school, a two-minute drive. Sport is banned from the curriculum. Tzvika goes to the library every day and enjoys reading the holy scriptures. He also likes to play religious games on his computer. He wants to become a rabbi, and his favourite food is schnitzel and chips.

Where Children Sleep
Jamie, 9, lives with his parents and younger twins brother and sister in a penthouse on 5 th Avenue, New York. Jamie goes to a prestigious school and is a good student.

Where Children Sleep
Indira, seven, lives with her parents, brother and sister near Kathmandu in Nepal. Her house has only one room, with one bed and one mattress. At bedtime, the children share the mattress on the floor. Indira has worked at the local granite quarry since she was three. The family is very poor so everyone has to work. There are 150 other children working at the quarry. Indira works six hours a day and then helps her mother with household chores. She also attends school, 30 minutes’ walk away. Her favourite food is noodles. She would like to be a dancer when she grows up.

Where Children Sleep
Kaya, four, lives with her parents in a small apartment in Tokyo, Japan. Her bedroom is lined from floor to ceiling with clothes and dolls. Kaya’s mother makes all her dresses – Kaya has 30 dresses and coats, 30 pairs of shoes and numerous wigs. When she goes to school, she has to wear a school uniform. Her favourite foods are meat, potatoes, strawberries and peaches. She wants to be a cartoonist when she grows up.

Where Children Sleep
Douha, 10, lives with her parents and 11 siblings in a Palestinian refugee camp in Hebron, in the West Bank. She shares a room with her five sisters. Douha attends a school 10 minutes’ walk away and wants to be a paediatrician. Her brother, Mohammed, killed himself and 23 civilians in a suicide attack against the Israelis in 1996. Afterwards the Israeli military destroyed the family home. Douha has a poster of Mohammed on her wall.

Where Children Sleep
Jasmine (‘Jazzy’), four, lives in a big house in Kentucky, USA, with her parents and three brothers. Her house is in the countryside, surrounded by farmland. Her bedroom is full of crowns and sashes that she has won in beauty pageants. She has entered more than 100 competitions. Her spare time is taken up with rehearsal. She practises her stage routines every day with a trainer. Jazzy would like to be a rock star when she grows up.

Where Children Sleep
Home for this boy and his family is a mattress in a field on the outskirts of Rome, Italy. The family came from Romania by bus, after begging for money to pay for their tickets. When they arrived in Rome, they camped on private land, but the police threw them off. They have no identity papers, so cannot obtain legal work. The boy’s parents clean car windscreens at traffic lights. No one from his family has ever been to school.

Where Children Sleep
Dong, nine, lives in Yunnan province in south-west China with his parents, sister and grandfather. He shares a room with his sister and parents. The family own just enough land to grow their own rice and sugarcane. Dong’s school is 20 minutes’ walk away. He enjoys writing and singing. Most evenings, he spends one hour doing his homework and one hour watching television. When he is older, Dong would like to be a policeman.

Where Children Sleep
Roathy, eight, lives on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. His home sits on a huge rubbish dump. Roathy’s mattress is made from old tyres. Five thousand people live and work here. At six every morning, Roathy and hundreds of other children are given a shower at a local charity centre before they start work, scavenging for cans and plastic bottles, which are sold to a recycling company. Breakfast is often the only meal of the day.

Where Children Sleep
Thais, 11, lives with her parents and sister on the third floor of a block of flats in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She shares a bedroom with her sister. They live in the Cidade de Deus (‘City of God’) neighbourhood, which used to be notorious for its gang rivalry and drug use. Since the 2002 film City of God, it has undergone major improvements. Thais is a fan of Felipe Dylon, a pop singer, and has posters of him on her wall. She would like to be a model.

Where Children Sleep
Nantio, 15, is a member of the Rendille tribe in northern Kenya. She has two brothers and two sisters. Her home is a tent-like dome made from cattle hide and plastic, with little room to stand. There is a fire in the middle, around which the family sleep. Nantio’s chores include looking after the goats, chopping firewood and fetching water. She went to the village school for a few years but decided not to continue. Nantio is hoping a moran (warrior) will select her for marriage. She has a boyfriend now, but it is not unusual for a Rendille woman to have several boyfriends before marriage. First, she will have to undergo circumcision, as is the custom.

Where Children Sleep
Joey, 11, lives in Kentucky, USA, with his parents and older sister. He regularly accompanies his father on hunts. He owns two shotguns and a crossbow and made his first kill – a deer – at the age of seven. He is hoping to use his crossbow during the next hunting season as he has become tired of using a gun. He loves the outdoor life and hopes to continue hunting into adulthood. His family always cook and eat the meat from the animal they have shot. Joey does not agree that an animal should be killed just for sport. When he is not out hunting, Joey attends school and enjoys watching television with his pet bearded dragon lizard, Lily.

    This is so revealing of perspective…if that makes any sense. Children all of the same age living such drastically different lifestyles. The exact reason we have no room to judge one another. Our stories are all so different. This is such an awesome project.

  • Ella

    Beautiful work of art. Love it. It makes my heart ache in the best and worst way.

  • Elise

    Although I thought this was a beautiful display of perspective, I think it is important to realize that there are hundreds of thousands of impoverished children living within the United States. I think it was represented here that all of the need is overseas and that the US fosters affluence and luxury. Although it is true that many who are considered “poor” by western standards would live as royalty in the third world, I would have liked to have seen at least one child living below the poverty line in the US rather than 3 who seem to have comfortable homes and their own warm beds to sleep on.

  • Steph

    I did not appreciate your representation of the Palestinian child. I am not sure if you intended to do so, or you are just ignorant, but not all Palestinians are Muslims (Palestinian Christians do exist! I am married to one!) and a smaller percentage of Palestinian Muslims are members of ‘radical terrorist organizations’ that carry out suicide bombings. People who don’t know any better will see this and you will help perpetuate this stereotype that Palestinian is synonymous with suicide bomber and terrorist, which is not true and so unfair. Also, you failed to mention in your description of the Israeli settler child that his presence there is illegal by international law and while he enjoys his scripture reading, he is taught by his rabbis and family to hate and fear Arabs, he is taught in his school a politically-driven fabricated version of the history of ‘his country’ used to perpetuate the hatred against Arabs, and is taught that stealing is RIGHT because GOD has commanded it. Pretty pictures, yes, but learn more about your subjects.

  • Genevieve

    Love the photos, but I’m also a little miffed with some of your portraits, particularly the American ones. I’ve lived in the US most of my life, and have rarely seen any child pageant stars or weapon-obsessed mini hunters. They’re a horrible stereotype of American children, and I don’t believe this is a fair representation of the US as a whole. It would’ve been nice to see some kids from the poorer urban areas, or maybe a more typical 10 year old from a middle-income family. Just a thought.

  • Nikki

    First off I would like to say what a wonderful project this is. I love that it shows how differently some children grow up.I know I was one of the impoverished children in the U.S. and would have liked to see that myself, but I am glad there are children here leading happy childhoods. I would like to hope Steph would STFU. You have no idea what that child is being taught. Have you spoken directly to that child? I’m a Roman Catholic and I was never taught to hate any other religion, although people seem to think I have been. Why don’t YOU talk to these children before you make assumptions. Get off your high horse lady.

  • sharon

    I like the mixture of both personal information and information on their culture. Hope to see representation from all continents on here.

    Excellence all around!

  • Dr.Ridiculous

    This is an amazing piece. However, as always, I think the USA is portrayed poorly. There is poverty everywhere in the world just as there is wealth everywhere in the world, and if you think that the wealth is distributed any more or less fair in this country than any other you are blind. It is not the nations responsibility to help individuals (overseas or not) its the INDIVIDUALS responsibility. Like I said, this is still a very creative post, and very thought provoking, but if it moves you you may want to think about DOING BETTER for other.

  • Erin

    So let me get this straight; some of you are upset because they didn’t represent American poverty? Yes the American children represent stereotypes and not every child here lives that way, but what makes you think that the same is not true for the other children’s stories? I confess I’m not well traveled, but they seem rather stereotypical too. Ever think maybe that’s part of the point of this piece?

    And Steph: I didn’t see in that piece where it said all Palestinians are Muslim. That was one child who was. And clearly that is the stereotype, just like with the American children. Its also very hypocritical to dispute one stereotype at the beginning of your post then go on to perpetuate another.

  • Sonia Munoz

    OMG- some of you people are taking this waaay too seriously. This is not meant to stereotype ANY country or culture. They were children chosen for a project. Shut up already and enjoy the beautiful work out into this piece. UGH such whiners!!!

  • http://flickr.com/photos/ochurchill kip

    for all those throwing hissy fits about there not being enough poor Americans – take the time to check out the full collection. e.g. http://www.jamesmollison.com/wherechildrensleep.php?project_id=6&p=5
    and anyway if you take each photograph as a representation of every single child in that culture, the problem lies with your ignorance not the photographer’s.
    oh and beautiful photos!

    The lack of diversity is amusing, consider the US children shown… a far cry from what the norm is here.

  • Lex

    I think when you put something so drastic as this people are going to have their own opinions obviously but you can’t expect every type of person to be portrayed here. These are just a few of the millions of children in the world and just because there wasn’t a certain “type” not photographed or written about, doesn’t make them any less important in the world. I just don’t think the photographer/journalist meant it in that way or maybe they did but that’s not what I took from this. I just took what was shown and what was written and I thought it was beautiful and sad at the same time. Glad I stumbled upon this.

    I love the idea behind the photo shoot and the photos themselves, but I really did not like that three children of color had to be photographed half-naked or with tools/trash. I think the photos of their sleeping locations reveals enough about their situations.

  • Lola

    This is a very interesting and moving piece.

    The only issue is I feel like the American children were definitely out of the ordinary and made to seem a little ridiculous. Those children in the pictures from America do not make sense. They were over the top and does not represent American children at all.

  • d

    To the people saying some of these are stereotypes. I’m pretty sure they all are. The purpose of this project is to highlight the extent of difference in children’s lifestyles. Its not to show the norm, its to show the extremes that can exist. I agree however that the chidren’s portraits are going a bit too far and are too staged. The rooms themselves are enough.

    I enjoyed this – living in India, I can think of some local ragpickers whose kids would have been excellent for this. However, it also should have included one photo that was markedly missing and would have excelled at showing disparity: one of America’s many homeless children. Or any of the lower-income families. Extremes exist – and this did a good job of showing them – but I think it would have been made more poignant had they included one of the American children who do not have the wealth to have decorated rooms such as the others do – be it in crowns, expensive brands, or camo.

  • Danielle

    This is a fabulous portrayal of stereotypes in general. An excellent portrayal of how the worlds people see each other. So many people complaining about the stereotypes within their own culture, yet no one seems to notice that ALL of these children represent terrible and drastic stereotypes in ALL cultures. Consider how you interpret all of these pictures before criticizing the one from your own culture. Asking to see poor Americans or poor Japanese? There are also wealthy Brazilians and Palestinians. Who thinks to stereotype that though?

  • Lara

    Re: Steph’s comments about the Palestinian child and the Israeli child, I hope readers will also keep in mind that the little girl would have probably have had just as biased (if not more biased) education regarding the Israelis. (If you look at some of the videos on MEMRI that the Hamas are passing off as educational children’s programing, you’ll see what I mean, and the Holocaust isn’t allowed to be taught in many schools run in Jordan by the United Nations (there’s an article about it on the PressTV website).

    As a Jew, when I looked at that article, I didn’t think that little girl is my enemy: far from it. I thought it was sad that an innocent little girl has a picture of men with guns in her room, and that hatred can blind people like this. Of course I’ve also heard terrible, racist things from some Haredi Jews, but most Israelis are indeed secular. Fortunately neither of the extremes these two children live in are representative of their people at large, but having democratically elected the Hamas certainly wasn’t a step in the right direction where the peace process is concerned.

    all the comments about the american kids not being representative: maybe the point was to get you to think about how the others might not be representative as well?

    what interested me was while some people understood the point of the photographs immediately, a majority didn’t at all. most people here seemed to think that the other children really are “representative” of the cultures they come from. just goes to show how difference is viewed by most people. which is actually really scary!

    I’m also unsure about the introduction to the piece, I dont really think the point is to depict the ‘ “realities” of inequality’ at all..?

    These pictures are riveting. To the people complaining, you’re perpetuating stereotypes by exclaiming that this article is somehow representative of all children of similar background; this article never set out to document the lives of every child, it set out to capture the lives of particular children in drastically different walks of life, and it did a fantastic job of it.

    I liked these pictures, however, I don’t think that America or China, or really, anyone, was portrayed correctly. There is wealth and poverty in every nation, and I think that in order to be fair, there should have been pictures taken not from states, but from classes. Or maybe focus on one city and take pictures from various locations in that city. I know for a fact that I did NOT grow up with a buncha crap. I am a middle-class American who grew up in a trailer park til we moved in with my grandma. America means a lot more than lawyers and models. Seriously.

  • Stargazer

    That boy living on a mattress with his family in Italy breaks my heart. I want to help them so much. :(

  • Jo

    Beautiful, but insanely stereotypical photography. You can find wealth and poverty virtually anywhere.

  • Charity

    Listen up people. Face it! Alot of Americans may not be exactly like these children but alot of us do find it hard to relate to some of these other situations. I grew up very poor. That being said, I would HATE to be exposed to some of the situations that these children in the foreign countries are in. As poor as we were, it was still 10 times better than some of these living conditions. I believe we should worry about the whole world, not just America. We are no more important than anyone else. My friends were the impovrished youth of America and we had good in comparison. I am not ashamed to say that I am grateful to have been born in America and not living the life of that poor child in Cambodia. Our trash is so rich in America, very well off people dig in it as a hobby, CHOSEN lifestyle or to make an environmental statement. People need to wake up!

    And to the one whining about the “misrepresented Muslim child”. My stepfather is Muslim, living in Egypt. He does not hate anyone. You are right we need to be intellegent about not being stereotypical, but this little girls story is not propaganda, it is fact. That is the fact of her life. To beleive that one picture, of one child represents a whole group or country of people is ignorant. I personally do not feel hate, but sadness.

  • Kylie

    Goodness I cannot believe that child lives on a mattress with his family near Italy… in a field! Also, I get so upset when I hear of women being circumsized. That poses such negative health risks to the woman, especially when they close up the opening and reopen it just for intercourse.

  • Ms. Biochemistry

    I thought that this piece was inspiring and I wish that more countries had been represented in it. Like Mexico since it’s so close to the US yet has such a different lifestyle. Or a child of wealth outside of the US, such as in France or the UK. I think that Europe was under represented. I also think that South America as a whole didn’t have much representation. I disagree with the stereotype that you’ve built of the US using this portfolio though. I’ve lived in Washington for my entire life and while there are people that go hunting I’ve never seen or met someone who is gun crazy and rich. Nor have I ever met a child pagent goer. And a very small percent of America’s have neough money to go to a prestigious school like Mr. Jamie. I wish you had incorporated someone of wealth, someone of middle class, and someone who is well below the poverty line to represent America. SInce it’s such a large country it’s hard to get across what it’s actually like using just three pictures, but I don’t think you quite gave it the justice that it deserves considering that there are many American’s that live day by day and don’t have the luxery of such large rooms with extravagant objects in them.

    This is a wonderful project and beautifully done. For those that are upset about how the American children are portrayed, I would just like to remind you that both of those children ARE American and therefore are just as qualified as any other American child to stand as an example. Also, I am saddened that others are so upset and personally offended by the descriptions of one race while condemning another. If these children are really the nationality that they are described as then they are fair representations. If you are offended then consider your own insecurities and work on a little self-improvement, we could all use some of that.

    It is a valid point that some of these are representations of extreme circumstance in each country – and thus the complaints about the extreme and rare samples from the USA have merit. However, it cannot be disputed that whilst not all American children enter beauty pageants or carry guns, or that Isreali children are all privilaged and leading sheltered lives,there is the latitude and potential for that life to be an OPTION for them. The difference fo rmany of the other children is that they(and their parents) have no choice or possibility to change their circumstances.

    It would be nice to have a “happiness points” for each of them. I’ve been in some of the poorest and richest homes in my country and poor children are noticeably happier than children that have it all. Not the same for all adults, but still some poor adults are happier than reach guys.
    I guess there is also a line, if you have nothing to eat, that’s different.

I also have a chinese AFS student with me this year and the chinese child is not most typical either. So if you do the sensational you would do well to also show the typical.

    I find it annoying when I see these lists, (this is like the third list exactly like this I’ve seen online), and the Americans are portrayed as being so much better off. I was born and raised here in the U.S. and was dirt poor growing up. Most times, (when we weren’t homeless or in motels), I slept on the floor wrapped up in old sweaters and coats and occasionally one of those scratchy blankets they give out at homeless shelters. The only times we ever had a bed my mom, me and my sister all slept on it together and used rolled up jeans or my teddy bear as a pillow. And this wasn’t some welfare family, my mom always worked as long as I can remember. There are poor people in this country, too.

    It is an interesting concept but I wish the work was not so politically slanted. I would have preferred seeing children’s bedrooms that are representative of their countries rather than extreme examples that are not representative of their country. For example, I grew up in the United States and never met anyone remotely like the three American children profiled. I also wish there were only facts about how many brothers and sisters they have not politically motivated comments. For instance, it seems you picked this Palestinian girl because her brother was a suicide bomber and Israel destroyed her home. Such information is unnecessary. Furthermore it all happened before she was even born.
