“Mr. Fischer kept a chessboard by his bed, right, just in case he had any ideas during the night.”
Harry Benson, The New York Times

“I got along with Bobby Fischer because I knew nothing about chess. Bobby thought anyone who knew about chess was a moron.”
Harry Benson, Newsweek

“Fischer was notorious for his abrasive manner, but Benson’s pictures get beyond the antagonistic persona, beyond the antics. ‘There was a softness I found in him,’ he reflects.”
TIME LightBox

“Benson’s beautiful and evocative portraits help us recall the titan at his height.”
Barnes and Noble Review
