16 Children & Their Bedrooms From Around the World…

What did your childhood bedroom look like? Chances are if you grew up in a westernized world, it had a solid bed, scattered toys, and wall decorations that creatively expressed the type of child you were, and hinted at the person you were to become.

What you may have taken for granted, however, a large percent of others will never experience. There’s no right or wrong pertaining to living situations, but many unique lessons to be gained from acknowledging that the type of childhood one is given has an impressionable effect on their future.

To capture the diversity of living situations all over the world, photographer James Mollison traveled from Japan to Brazil. The following photographs may be shocking, but will definitely lend insight into why equality for all is a mission worth working hard for.

All people are one – there are no borders. But in a world ruled by finances and personal status, an imbalance of powers keeps the diversity of class and races separate. This has an effect on each child being raised to engage with the world, rather than be one with it.

Becoming aware of such separation, however, is the first step to ignite change.
