South of Abkhazia, near the georgian border.
After the 1992 war, ethnic georgians fled en masse the country.
Abkhazi slowly rebuilt their lives and their homes, while those houses belonging to georgians are left in a stat of abandon and decay, and no one is allowed to restore them.
They can only be torn down completely and rebuilt.
They dot the Abkhaz landscape like ancient ruins, a slowly disappearing testimony of the tragedy of the civil war.
Ochamchire, a city of 20.000 dwellers before the war, is now reduced to just one fourth of its previous population.
It sits by the sea in an astounding location, most of the buildings that were buing built along the coastline still there, "frozen" after the war.
An abandoned ferris wheel towers over the trees and buildings.
