O que a Floresta Amazônica tem a ver com o luxo da Fifth Avenue?

James Mollison fez um documentário fotográfico sobre algo em comum: onde as crianças dormem.
A partir dessa ideia, ele capturou a diversidade e a desigualdade de culturas e hábitos,
provocando um profundo questionamento, através destas imagens, sobre as disparidades  da cultura em que vivemos.

de Where Children Sleep: James Mollison’s Poignant Photographs



What the Amazon rainforest has to do with the Kaisut Desert and Fifth Avenue luxury.

From the start, I didn’t want it just to be about ‘needy children’ in the developing world, but rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations. It seemed to make sense to photograph the children themselves, too, but separately from their bedrooms, using a neutral background.” ~ James Mollison
