"When the Irish housing bubble burst in 2008, activity on building sites suddenly stopped. Until now, the Irish landscape is still covered by thousands of unoccupied houses. Whilst in the past, ghost towns were abandoned ones, the ghost towns of today have never been inhabited. Valérie Anex turns her camera towards the walls, the hedges, the fences and the advertising signs of these vestiges of wealth."
