James Mollison’s book Where Children Sleep features remarkable photos of kids from many countries around the globe and then a second picture to pair with each portrait of the space where that child spends the night. It is an extraordinary glimpse into the different way people live across this diverse planet.

The book is meant as a fine art book for adults, but is also intended to capture the interest of children, too, as they grow up and learn that the world is full of all sorts of different people — people like…

Kaya in Tokyo, whose proud mother spends $1,000 a month on her dresses; Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy, who sleeps outdoors with his father’s herd of goats; the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three; and Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle.

Here are just a few…
