Via Farabale weekly

According to a study by the United Nations University more than 40 million tons of e-waste – discarded electrical and electronic equipment – were generated in 2014.
Most electronic devices contain small quantities of poisonous metals and while we are typically not at risk when we use them, once the devices are dumped and dismantled the toxic substances are released – polluting the environment and harming the health of anyone who comes in contact with them.

Photographer Mário Macilau’s project Profit Corner uses powerful images to confront consumers with the consequences of their insatiable appetite for new electronic devices: In Macilau’s narrative the life cycle of electronic products is transformed into a cycle of sickness and death.

Profit Corner will be shown at the Lagos Photo Festival – the first and only international arts festival of photography in Nigeria running from October 22 to November 21! See more
