Where Children Sleep

Lewis by James Mollison

Mother Jones published a portfolio of images by James Mollison. They are from a series he made of children around the world and their bedrooms. I've seen several projects like this over the years showing people, usually young people, in their bedrooms or homes. Mollison uses a different approach in this case. He doesn't try to photograph the person in their environment, but photographs each separately and then afterwards pairs them together. This makes sense because he can take his time with each image and then can try out different images to see how they work with each other. I'm only guessing about his working methods, but like I said, it does make sense. Anyway, a great portfolio and definitely worth checking out. You can see it here.
