Empty Land, Promised land, Forbidden land (2010)

Kuabchara, ABKHAZIA, 2009 - Zashrikwa and Edrese showing their Kalashnikov's in their home in the completely abandoned village of Kuabchara in the Kodori Valley. According to their uncle they're not children anymore, they are fighters. That's the reason why they are allowed to have a gun. The Kodori Valley (also known as the Kodori Gorge) is a river valley in Abkhazia, Georgia's breakaway autonomous republic. The valley's upper part, populated by Svans, was the only corner of the post-1993 Abkhazia, directly controlled by the central Georgian government, which officially styles the area as Upper Abkhazia. On August 12, 2008, Abkhazian forces gained control of most of the Kodori Valley, previously controlled by Georgia..© ROB HORNSTRA/+31 6 14365936
