Abkhazia is a place both imaginary and real, whose existence as a country has never been legally confirmed. Though the region managed to win its independence from Georgia in the 90's it remains unrecognized as its own state. This haunted place hardly moves, crippled by its lack of resources and its exile from history. The French-American photographer Eric Baudelaire has beautifully captured the limbo-essence of this non-nation in his book "Imaginary States."

Take a tour of Abkhazia here.
