Empty land, Promised land, Forbidden land
2010 / English / 900 copies
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.
