This was part of a project that never really got off the ground. It was supposed to be a series about relationships and interpersonal conflict. The chessboard was going to appear in all of the images, but I had trouble in that some of the images simply looked contrived.
I am however, pleased with this photograph as a stand alone piece. Note the female figure topeling the King…isn’t that they way it always goes?
This is a copy stand photograph of the final (one of a kind) print.
