Frances Peltz Assa found herself in Telluride, Colorado and took the opportunity to follow in Humbert Humbert’s footsteps to photograph the route that led to Humbert’s mountainside epiphany in which he poignantly realizes that he has robbed Lolita of her childhood. Standing where Humbert and Nabokov stood, Assa discovered that Nabokov fictionalized his description of this location.
