    I'm a big fan of Eskenazi's work, though I'm not fortunate enough to own Wonderland, I learned about his Black Garden project a while back and have been looking forward to the book. Anyone know what happened to that? There's nothing on his website except a link to a vimeo page, and the kickstarter hasn't had any updates since 2011

    He's still working on it afaik. Currently he's based in Istanbul. I've met and chatted with him here a few times, and if I remember correctly he said he's planning to travel to some neighbouring countries to continue photographing for Black Garden.

    Wonderland is a rather legendary book project travelling across the former Soviet Union after the fall of the Berlin wall, the photographs are excellent although the book now fetches 600$ on ebay. Black Garden is the new project he announced on his webpage.
