James Mollison
Where Children Sleep


When he was a child, James Mollison’s bedroom was his personal kingdom—it was a reflection of his identity, interests and aspirations as they evolved through childhood.
When, two decades later, he was asked to come up with an idea to promote children’s rights, he founds himself thinking about his bedroom, and realized that millions of children don’t sleep in a place they can call “their room.” Therefore, the project has become a way to think about issues of poverty and wealth, and the power of children––or lack of it––to make decisions about their lives.


James Mollison (b. 1973, Nairobi, Kenya) works with original concepts applied to social and cultural themes.
