Lolita Cover Project
Participating in John Bertram’s Lolita cover project was a great honor. While deeply affecting, it is a novel that I feel is most commonly misconstrued with the titular character represented as a person capable of consent and not as a child preyed upon by a solipsistic pedophile. So for my interpretation of the cover I purposely did not want to portray a sexualized woman-child and instead created an image that, to me, highlighted the ambiguity and the underlying darkness of Humbert Humbert’s beguiling narrative.
