Pin-Up Chess!

These images are from my 2012 project, The Pin-Up Chess Calendar, which aimed to pose questions about the disparity between the portrayals of physical and intellectual beauty in women. Each month featured a pin-up model studying a crucial move from one of the great games in chess history. The dates on the calendar were marked with important events in the history of women's chess, as well as a schedule of current women's chess events and the birthdays of great women chess players past and present.
