"Ghana: Following our E-waste"

A collaborative reportage by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Muntaka Chasant and Bénédicte Kurzen

Exhibition: 1 July - 29 September, 2024

This summer, the report by the laureates of the 13th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the ecological and human challenges of e-waste in Ghana is on display in two exhibitions at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and at the Fondation MRO in Arles.

With the support of the Fondation Carmignac, investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, and photojournalists Muntaka Chasant and Bénédicte Kurzen, spent a year documenting the transboundary flow of e-waste between Ghana and Europe. Their collaborative report highlights the complexities of this global issue, revealing both its economic importance for thousands in Ghana and its significant human and environmental impacts.

Kurzen documented e-waste flows and communities involved, challenging stereotypes and shedding light on the inefficiencies within European e-waste management systems. In Accra, Chasant studied e-waste workers' social structures and migration. And Anas went undercover to expose corruption and illegal e-waste flows re-entering global markets. This exhibition offers a nuanced perspective on the challenges and issues related to e-waste management on a global scale.
