    He has had the desire to play chess for a long time. His wish came true one day and it was so beautiful to see him just playing by himself. He doesn´t understand the game yet but eager to learn it.

    I love how hard he is concentrating. He could be playing video games or just watching TV, but instead, here he is learning. By himself. I don't feel as if he is lonely, just alone. I love it. I also like your decision to present this photo in black and white; by stripping the frame of any color, you are forcing the viewer to focus on the quiet moment you are sharing. And by shooting wide, you're showing me that no one is around giving him instructions, that he really is learning by himself.
