Kenyan-born, English-raised, Venice-based documentary photographer James Mollison's photographs of children and their sleeping arrangements highlights the shocking disparity between the living conditions of children from all over the world. From Fifth Avenue to Katmandu, Mollison's book, Where Children Sleep, was written and designed as an empathy tool for 9-to-13-year-olds to better understand the lives of other children around the world.

"4-year-old Jasmine has participated in over 100 child beauty pageants and lives in a large house in the Kentucky countryside."

ICK!!! Wrong in SO many ways.
