|This guy is crying because of the West’s obsession with advances in technology. He works in an inhuman area that is referred to by local inhabitants as Sodom and Gomorrah. The UN stated that Western countries produce 50 million tons of digital waste a year. Much of that is shipped to developing countries, supposedly to create jobs and help people. In reality, the inhabitants survive largely by burning it all to extract copper and other metals.  Photographer Pieter Hugo Exhibition Untill May 20, The Hague Museum of Photography
