INFO

Pieter Hugo (b. 1976, South Africa) is nominated for his publication Permanent Error (2010). This work centres on a vast dumping ground for technological waste on the outskirts of Ghana's capital city Accra, and the young slum-dwellers whose survival depends on processing and burning this discarded material.

Hugo's photographs of this bleak landscape question the ethics of our rapid consumption of ever-new technology and its hidden consequences.
