Photographer's Note

The Church of Transfiguration Cathedral in the city of Uglich on the Volga is an important place historically, that marks the end of the Rurik kingdom and the end of the middle ages of Russia.

After Ivan IV's death, his youngest son Dmitry Ivanovich was banished to Uglich in 1584. The most famous event in the town's history took place on May 15, 1591 when the 10-year-old boy was found dead with his throat cut in the palace courtyard. Suspicion immediately fell on the tsar's chief advisor, Boris Godunov. Official investigators concluded however that Dimitriy's death was an accident. They cut a "tongue" from the cathedral bell that rung the news of Dimitriy's death and "exiled" it to Siberia.
