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.

  1. People know that a replica watch is a replica watch and the replica watches can never replace a real one. Why go in for a replica watch when you can get a real one. They say that the replica watch is cheaper that the real one. Most of them agree in unison that the replica watches sale lasts nearly as long as the real one. They point out that fake rolex sale keeps proper time too. You should wear luxury and cheap replica watches. Deep down inside, doesn't each and every one of us want to be noticed or want to be replica watches sale and a fashion icon. Unfortunately, most of the clothes and replica watches sale that adorn the bodies of the models, that walk the ramp don't ever seem to catch up to our personality's. The clothes are either too bold or the accessories are just plain or overdone. We often tend to choose garments, that represent our motto's, our ideals and our lifestyles. Just like a home that functions as a mirror to our lives. For instance, a messy home may reflect the cluttered thoughts that rolex replica or an overtly neat home may reflect the perfectionist in us.
