The My Child Matters program was launched in 2005 with the goal of giving all children with cancer, wherever they live around the world, the same opportunities to access quality care according to international recommendations.
For the My Child Matters exhibition, James Mollison photographed children benefiting from My Child Matters projects in Senegal, Morocco, Paraguay, Colombia and Thailand. These photos, taken in hospitals and at the patients’ homes, reveal the realities, the faces, the stories behind the word “cancer”. These are portraits of children and their families whose lives have changed but who, thanks to their courage and My Child Matters, may have a better chance of fighting the disease.
James Mollison, born in Kenya in 1973, is a British photographer. After studying art and design at Oxford Brookes University, then film and photography at the Newport School of Art and Design, he moved to Italy. He is the author of two books on children: Where Children Sleep and Playground. His work has been published by The New York Times Magazine, The Guardian magazine, The Paris Review, New York Magazine and The World.
The sale of the photos is made for the benefit of children with cancer.
