15 school playgrounds around the world

Photographer James Mollison traveled around the world to capture the amazing images of various playgrounds. Inspired by his memories from childhood, he created this wonderful project Playground.

Most of the photos were taken during the course of a single recess. You can notice the huge diversity among the playgrounds. Some of them are built on dirt, others are on the field. Most of them don’t involve gyms or swing sets. One thing they have in common, the children are happy and enjoy their time.

Also, you can find a book Playground, writen by James Mollison, and released by Aperture Foundation
