Where Children Sleep photographed by James Mollison around the world.
"When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights, he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing. Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear.”
Another View Inside the Unicorn
Recently we shared an image of the Rosette Nebula located in the Monoceros constellation (the Unicorn) – check it out here.
This is another star forming region in the same constellation, Monoceros R2. Monoceros R2 is located about 2,700 light years away.
The region is mostly obscured by dust when you view it in optical wavelengths, but just like the previously featured image, this image was taken in the infrared regime – exposing the real beauty of the nebula.
“When I first saw this image I just said ‘Wow!’ I was amazed to see all the dust streamers so clearly around the Monoceros R2 cluster, as well as the jets from highly embedded young stellar objects. There is such a great wealth of exciting detail revealed in these VISTA images,” says Jim Emerson, of Queen Mary, University of London and leader of the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) consortium.
