November 2015 issue
by James Mollison
For his latest book, Playground, James Mollison photographs 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. 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.
