Photographer's Note

I took this picture at the Donskoi cemetery. The tranquility of the image was in wonderful accord with the first snow of the year.

In the mid-18th century the necropolis of the Donskoi Monastery became the cemetery in which Moscow aristocrats were buried. Many gravestones were made by outstanding sculptors, among them Ivan Martos, Vassily Demut-Malinovsky and Ivan Vitali. Participants in the 1819 Patriotic War, Decembrists, philosopher Pyotr Chaadayev, writers Kheraskov, Sumarokov and Odoyevsky, painter Vassily Perov, scientists Vassily Klyuchevsky and Nikolai Zhukovsky, architect Osip Bove are buried in this cemetery.
