The Hell of Copper, was taken in Accra, Ghana and it represents the terrifying life of people working on the so-called cemetery of abandoned computers. These people work there every day and their task is to burn the electronic equipment shipped from the United States and Europe. Workers set the electronic waste on fire in order to isolate the copper they can sell, even though it is an extremely dangerous and poisonous procedure.
