James Mollison was born in Kenya and grew up in England. After studying Film & Photography at Newport School of Art, he moved to Italy to work at Benetton’s creative lab, Fabrica. He now lives in Venice. His work is defined by original concepts applied to social and cultural themes. He is the author of Where Children Sleep, an ongoing project about children around the world and their bedrooms, which explores the complex realities of their lives. Volume 1 was published in 2010 and Volume 2 in 2023. Previous books include Playground —landscape photographs of schoolyards where children are at play; The Disciples —panoramic format portraits of music fans photographed before and after concerts; The Memory of Pablo Escobar —the extraordinary story of ‘the richest and most violent gangster in history’ told by hundreds of photographs gathered by Mollison; James and Other Apes— ‘passport’ photographs of great apes. The projects have been widely exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.
