Empty land, Promised land, Forbidden land
2013 / English / 800 copies
Second revised edition of 'Empty land, Promised land, Forbidden land'. The book is slightly smaller than the original edition and has been updated with recent photography and current developments. Apart from these minor updates and modifications, this is the same book as the original 2010 edition.

In Empty land, Promised land, Forbidden land, we explore the unknown country of Abkhazia on the Black Sea. Abkhazia broke away from Georgia after a short, violent civil war in ’92-’93 and was recognised as independent in 2008 by Russia, Venezuela, Nicaragua and the atoll of Nauru. We have spent the last four years travelling through the country, seeing how it is slowly trying to claw its way out of isolation. We visited the refugees in Georgia and described the attempts made by the Abkhazian government to repopulate the empty, war-ravaged country with new immigrants.
