Apropos of Dolores

This is a photo by Vivien Dorothy Maier who died in 2009 at the age of 83.
Her negatives, approximately 100,000 of them, were sold off a few years
earlier by the owner of the storage locker where they were kept, to pay for
the unpaid charges. They were discovered at an auction. See

Obviously when I saw this photo I immediately linked it to one of Nabokov
sitting in a car. Only, eerily, he has been replaced with the face of a
young girl of Lolita’s age with an enigmatic expression. I call the
photo *Apropos
of Dolores* after the title of an HG Wells book, since Wells was beloved by
