James Mollison's new book, Where Children Sleep, isn't your average portfolio of interior design. Mollison hopes that his collection will encourage children and adults to think about inequality and look at their own interior spaces from a different perspective.

Mollison, an English-born photographer, spent five years traveling the world and photographing children and the places they sleep. The result is a truly global look at childhood through the lens of personal space. The photographer pairs a portrait of each young child with a photo of his or her living area and a small paragraph describing the child's life. The pictures are beautiful, sometimes startling, and always compelling.

The book is available in print form, but you can also peruse it online at Issu.
