Anatoly Karpov (Russian: Анатолий Евгеньевич Карпов; born May 23, 1951) is a Russian chess grandmaster and former World Champion. He was undisputed World Champion from 1975 to 1985, repeatedly challenged to regain the title from 1986 to 1990, then was FIDE World Champion from 1993 to 1999.

Anyhow today I drove more then 600 km to Banovci and back to do a portrait of him. Journalist Bernard Nežmah is a real expert on chess and Karpov noticed that so, discussion was going on for 1,5 hour. Other journalists had half as much. Nevertheless I had only a minute to do staged portrait, but nevertheless I really like this portrait.

  1. why are they no comments? who will step up to the plate and deliver a proper comment in this crazy world! The Russians bombed Tbilisi a few days ago and entered the town of Gori…come on lads…remember when Tito faught off the Red Army from coming to Yugoslavia. Remember Bobby Fischer? Anyway Bob Dylan just gave a concert a couple miles away from my house. The world keeps on spinning.

  3. Well, I don’t believe that Saakashvili is that inocent. As you might know he started the offensive in the first place and killed a lot of people when all media attention was devoted to Beijing. I’m sure we would not know that if Russia would not overreacted as they usually do.

  4. Let’s see, US was bad because it moved into Iraq because Sadam was killing people en mass. US is bad because it went after Serbia when Serbs were on the offensive in Kosovo. Now Russia is ok doing the same things?

  5. Iztok,
    role of a victim is a very aggressive role indeed.

    I think USA or even more EU could / should prevented Srebrenica from happening. But you can not compare clearly (for large, large majority) imperialistic war for oil (by numerous weapons of individual destructions) in Iraq with Russia’s intervention against Saakashvili’s banzai to southeren Osetia. I found out that there was only one Osetia until Stalin (he was Georgian) decided that Georgia is to be divided on two half’s. Anyhow what I want to say is that Saakashvili started offensive and then Russia overreacted and implemented huge force to regain influence in the region. As you know Saakašvili is close ally with G. Bush in Iraq.

    It’s fucked up situation I know, but I certainly don’t have such a pessimistic image of USA or Russia as you wrote.

  6. A ni podoben Uranu 🙂
    No, bolj brihten, a vseeno je malo podoben našemu “Veseljaku”.

    Ha, Uran me spominja na Shreka, ampak tale car pa je pretanek v zaloge za take asociacije.
