James Mollison: PlaygroundJames Mollison: Playground

Published by Aperture.
Text by Jon Ronson.

James Mollison's photo projects are based on smart, original concepts applied to serious social and environmental themes. For his latest book, Playground, Mollison has photographed children at play in 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 at a young age through play. For each picture, Mollison sets up his camera during school break time, making multiple frames, and then composing each final photograph from several scenes, in which he finds revealing "play" narratives. With photographs from rich and poor schools, in countries including Argentina, Bhutan, Bolivia, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Norway, Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom and the USA, Mollison also provides lively access for readers of all ages to issues of global diversity and inequality.
The work of James Mollison (born 1973) has been featured widely in such publications as Colors, The New York Times Magazine and The Paris Review, among many others. He has also published several books, among them James and Other Apes (2004), The Disciples (2008) and Where Children Sleep (2010).

James Mollison: The DisciplesJames Mollison: The Disciples

Published by Chris Boot.
Introduction by Desmond Morris.

Between 2004 and 2007, James Mollison attended pop concerts across Europe and the USA with a mobile photography studio, inviting fans of each music star or band to pose for their portrait outside the gig. He subsequently combined portraits of eight to ten fans for each performer into a single lineup, making a single panoramic image in each case. With a total of over 500 individual portraits, in 62 panoramic images, The Disciples was an original, sharp and highly entertaining take on contemporary music culture and the tribalism invoked by popular music stars. This new and expanded affordable edition features four new images produced after the original Disciples was published, including fans of MIA, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and a group of Elvis Presley tribute acts.

James Mollison: Where Children SleepJames Mollison: Where Children Sleep

Published by Chris Boot.

Where Children Sleep presents English-born photographer James Mollison's large-format 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. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child: Kaya in Tokyo, whose proud mother spends $1,000 a month on her dresses; Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy, who sleeps outdoors with his father's herd of goats; the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three; and Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle. Photographed over two years with the support of Save the Children (Italy), Where Children Sleep is both a serious photo-essay for an adult audience, and also an educational book that engages children themselves in the lives of other children around the world. Its cover features a child's mobile printed in glow-in-the-dark ink.

James Mollison: The Memory of Pablo EscobarJames Mollison: The Memory of Pablo Escobar

Published by Chris Boot.
Text by Rainbow Nelson.

The extraordinary story of the richest and most violent gangster in history--from his youth, his bid for political power, his domination of the world's cocaine trade, his campaign against the Colombian state during which thousands died, his imprisonment in a luxurious private jail, his escape, through to his eventual capture and shooting--is told in hundreds of photographs gathered by photographer James Mollison in Colombia. Exhaustively researched, this visual biography includes photographs from Escobar family albums, pictures by Escobar's bodyguards, pictures from police files (both shot by the police and taken in raids on Escobar's premises) and snapshots by the Federal Drug Administration officer who helped hunt Escobar down. The book's illuminating text draws on new interviews with family members, other gangsters, Colombian police and judges and other survivors of Escobar's killing sprees, supplemented by contemporary photographs by Mollison of Escobar's fleet of planes, his private zoo, arms caches captured by the police--and even Escobar's prison jukebox. A compelling picture story and a landmark in visual journalism.

James Mollison: James & Other ApesJames Mollison: James & Other Apes

Published by Chris Boot.
Text by Jane Goodall.

Fifty great apes--chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives--are featured in this series of portraits by James Mollison. Photographed over a span of four years in seven ape sanctuaries (in Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Germany and the United States), they are mainly orphans, victims of the illicit trade in "bushmeat." Djeke, Fizi, Gregoire, James, Koto and the others are all photographed as unique individuals, in the manner of passport photographs, while representing species whose survival is under threat. Featuring case note biographies and introduced with a powerful essay by Jane Goodall, this book celebrates the great apes. The faces that look back at us also raise profound moral and scientific questions--including what it means to define ourselves "human."
