Chess – for many of us, the most boring sport in the world. Many even do not know that chess is officially classified as a sport discipline. This documentary photo series proves that for some people chess in fact represents the world full of strong emotions, adrenaline and stress. Professionals work on their chess between 6-8 hours a day and perform theoretically, practically, mentally and physically. All this mental tension and exertion manifests itself physically, as witnessed by Anatolij Karpov’s 10 kilos weight loss during his World Championship match against Garri Kasparov in 1984. In addition to that, this series focuses especially on the 'youth' tournaments in order to motivate young people through the emotions captured in “decisive moments” to replace electronic devices with a real-world 'physical' interpersonal communication and entertainment.
