Children of the World and Where they sleep…

Where Children Sleep presents English-born photographer James Mollison’s photographs of children’s bedrooms around the world – from the U.S.A., Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel and the West Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India – alongside portraits of the children themselves.

“I hope the book gives a glimpse into the lives some children are living in very diverse situations around the world; a chance to reflect on the inequality that exists, and realise just how lucky most of us in the developed world are,” – says James.

Is this the most beautiful street in the world? ...

Located in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, this gorgeous tree-lined street is said to be the most beautiful street in the world. Planted 70 years ago by German employees in a former brewery site, one hundred tipuana trees stretch approximately 500 meters. In 2005, some of the trees were almost cut down to make a room for a shopping mall, however, local residents forced the mayor José Fogaça to sign a decree making the street of Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho “historical, cultural and environmental heritage of the city.”
