David Llada's "The Thinkers" available on Amazon India

by Sagar Shah - 01/04/2018

There are a lot of people in India who love chess photography. Naturally, David Llada's book "The Thinkers" is something that they would love to possess. After all, David is one of the best photographers in the world of chess. However, the book had to be imported from Europe and with the shipping charges (not to forget the endless wait for months!) it would become quite expensive. But now the book is available on Amazon India and ships to your place within a fortnight! The cost of the book is also quite reasonable. Before you go ahead and buy the book, check out this article where Llada shares some of his best pictures from his recent trip to India. 

David Llada is considered to be one of the finest photographers in the world of chess right now. Each of his photographs is a work of art. And it was great fortune of Indian chess players that he recently visited India and captured some beautiful moments.

David came to the Delhi Open 2018 and then covered six rounds of the Chennai Open 2018. We asked him to share some of his favourite pictures that he had taken in this trip and this is what he sent us:

Chess is a lonely game!

Even when you have so many people around you, you feel lonely!

This picture makes you feel that chess is more than just a game!

No words needed. The stare is enough!

He is 84, but he is still mesmerized by the game!

A 2700+ player just needed one finger to get his brain working...

...An amateur needs two!

This man comes from a different planet! The Blindfold King - Timur Gareyev!
