Ghana’s computer graveyard.
In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, the photographer Pieter Hugo documented the garbage dumps in Ghana, where computers are burned and ripped apart for their rich minerals.
Mr. Hugo explains on his Web site that he has been documenting the destruction of obsolete technology in Ghana for the past year. Most of his work focused on a slum called Agbogbloshie, which he says is referred to by the locals as Sodom and Gomorrah.
