"The cemetery of the technological world. At a garbage dump in Ghana, people live in the cemetery of our technological world, where millions of tons of discarded computers are dumped and partially burned to recover recyclable raw materials, a contaminated wasteland that pollutes the air and groundwater.
In his haunting, intriguing photo essay, 'Permanent Error', Pieter HUGO exposes the repressed flip side of our fast-moving consumption and tells the story of a poverty-stricken community, of human strength and the will to survive of each individual." (© Prestel, 2011)
