The Photography of Lewis Carroll


"I always call him Lewis Carroll Carroll, because he was the first Humbert Humbert. Have you seen those photographs of him with little girls? He would make arrangements with aunts and mothers to take the children out. He was never caught, except by one girl who wrote about him when she was much older."


 -- V.V. Nabokov, interview, Dec. 1966 Vogue
