Children's rights has become such an abstract concept that it takes courageous, creative and caring artists like James Mollison to translate it to us. In his latest book, 'Where Children Sleep,' the photographer combines portraits of children from all over the world with photographs of the spaces where they sleep at night.

The portraits are made on a neutral background, reminiscent of the first article of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that says, "We're all born equal in dignity and rights." The photos of their personal spaces give us a glimpse about how those children's rights have been respected (or not).
