2015 - Ongoing
Abkhazia, once one of the most beloved touristic regions of the Russian Empire and later of the Soviet Union, the small stripe of land between the sea and mighty mountains of Caucasus, only a fifth of the size of Netherlands, is really a lost place on the world map. Officially still a part of Georgia, separated after the civil war of 1992, it’s a state recognized only by Russia and just a couple of other countries.
The story „Abkhazia“ is a portrait of the country. It researches the everyday life of people who try to exist within this uncertainty, within a system that doesn’t have a future and doesn’t seek one. This project is a continuation of my attempt at trying to find something positive even in the worst situations. I wanted to give a voice to people, whose country doesn’t exist on the world map. I am convinced that our world needs another perspectives and solutions!
