Knotan: Dark Lolita spread in PAP magazine
Everyone knows the standard image of Lolita – the sunbathing lollipop-sucking teenage seductress with love heart sunglasses. But in PAP magazine, KNOTAN shows us a darker take on Nabokov’s classic. This is Lolita at the end of the book, when things have turned sour, and a life on the run has taken its toll.
A feeling of seediness and lost innocence runs through every image: most obviously in the accusing eyes of his dark-haired model, but also in the little plastic Elvis which dangles in the rain-spattered car window. This is the end of the road.
