Laughter, tears and games demonstrate the intense experiences which happen in the playground. Photographer James Mollison set out to photograph children at play in their school playgrounds, inspired by memories of his own childhood and interested in how we all learn to negotiate relationships and our place in the world through play.

With photographs from rich and poor schools, numerous middle schools, and some high schools in countries from all over the world, Mollison also provides access for readers of all ages to issues of global diversity and inequality.

James Mollison was born in Kenya in 1973 and grew up in England. After studying Art and Design at Oxford Brookes University, and later film and photography at Newport School of Art and Design, he moved to Italy to work at Benetton’s creative lab, Fabrica. His work has been widely published throughout the world including by Colors, The New York Times Magazine, the Guardian magazine, The Paris Review, GQ, New York Magazine and Le Monde.

The photographs will be published under the form of a book, called ‘Playground’ and the official launch will be held at the Aperture Foundation, in New York, which will also feature an exhibition of the series.
