About the Book
It is the only town in Siberia and one of the few in Russia which has a stone kremlin. It was built at the turn of 17th and 18th centuries. Lots of famous people passed these walls and left or didn't a trace here. The last Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family were exiled there before being executed in 1918. By the way, the Tobolsk prison has a good reputation -- nobody has escaped it ever for all years the prison exists.
Through my photographs I write my part of history – history of the time in which we live, history of people who are close to us. And every photo – a portrait, an event or a cityscape – is a thin slice of the present-day life about which later it will be able to say – yes, it was so.
