Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov

These pictures were taken in Amsterdam in 2003.

Vladimir Nabokov was a Russian-American novelist, short story writer, and entomologist.
Lolita was written in English and first published in 1955.

Lolita was adapted to cinema in 1962 by Stanley Kubrick.

"All my stories are webs of style and none seems at first blush to contain much kinetic matter. For me style is matter."

"A writer should have the precision of a poet and the imagination of a scientist."

"(...) our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness."

"The breaking of a wave cannot explain the whole sea."
