In September 2013 reiste der Hamburger Fotograf Kevin McElvaney nach Ghana und besuchte einen Ort namens AGBOGBLOSHIE. Illegal Verschiffungen von Elektromüll aus der gesamten Welt verwandelten das vormalige Feuchtgebiet in Ghana zu eine der weltweit größten Elektroschrottdeponien. BHM PENLAW zeigt ab dem 13. Oktober 2016 zu Gunsten der Stiftung Hilfe mit Plan

Gemeinsam mit dem Umweltjournalisten Mike Anane (Gewinner des Global 500 Award) besuchte Kevin McElvaney diesen Ort und portraitierte Jugendliche, die dort leben. Zuvor wurden die Fotografien in verschiedenen internationalen Medien publiziert, so in TheGuardian, Al Jazeera, FOX, Die Zeit, Stern, Daily Mail, Afrika Outlook. Kevin McElvaney wurde mit den Arbeiten nominiert für den Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year Award 2014.

Wir bedanken uns bei allen Gästen, Freunden und Förderern, die die Vernissage bis in die späten Stunden zu einem kurzweiligen und unterhaltsamen Moment werden ließen. Hervorzuheben ist der Dank an Patrick Lux, die Stiftung Hilfe mit Plan, und Elephant Gin aus Hamburg. Wir danken auch den Gästen und Geschäftspartnern von BHM Penlaw, die während der vergangenen Wochen unsere Büroräume besucht haben, um gezielt die Fotografien zu sehen.
