Entry Description

Missing Neighbours is a series of photographs of houses in Belgium that have three facades and one facade is open and "waiting" for an other building or house to be build against it. Due to regulations one is not allowed to make a window or door in this facade. Sometimes it takes years before another neighbour builds his house against the existing one.
