Summary

The Thinkers is a visual tribute to the game of chess, showcasing the emotions, exertions and desires of the players, and conveying the mental intensity only chess can command. Included are some of the most iconic portraits of today's stars, as well as emotive shots of ordinary players from all over the world, with photos taken over the last five years in venues such as Mombasa, London, Chennai, Las Vegas, Baku and Sao Paulo.

Llada's photographs capture the full richness and drama of the game, making this the most visually stunning book ever devoted to chess.

“David Llada's pictures are full of life, and they are colourful even if black-and-white. Precisely as the game of chess itself.” – GM Emil Sutovsky, ACP President
