Chess in Almaty, Kazakhstan: a photo on Guardian Cities

In October 2017 the Guardian newspaper ran a series of features from Central Asia on the Guardian Cities webpage, entitled ‘Secret Stans’. The article “The decline of Russian dominance is striking: readers respond from the Stans” includes one of my photographs, of some men playing chess in Almaty in Kazakhstan.

One thought on “Chess in Almaty, Kazakhstan: a photo on Guardian Cities

  1. I love watching men playing games in the street. Serious chess in Lviv with clocks to time moves, backgammon on top of a bin in Signagi in Georgia, checkers in Tirana’s Skandebeg Square. Wasted a fair few minutes over the years watching those animated contests!
