"When I think about chess photography - I think David Llada. His pictures are full of life, and they are colourful even if white-and-black. Precisely as the game of chess itself. "

Emil Sutovsky, President of the ACP

"A consummate artist, David Llada has raised the bar for all aspiring chess photographers. He never disappoints. "

GM Nigel Short

"Nowadays you are nobody in the chess scene until David Llada has taken a photo of you. "

David Martinez, Chess24
