Welcome to Sodom

Florian Weigensamer
Christian Krönes
Agbogbloshie, Accra is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. About 6,000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it “Sodom”. Every year about 250,000 tons of discarded computers, smartphones, air conditioning tanks and other devices from a far away digitalized and electric world end up here. Illegally. Their personal inner voices allow for a deep insight into life in this place.
