... lost princess of the bowling alley.

... the theme of 'lost princesses' goes way back to my high school days. I had frequent infatuations with girls from 'the wrong side of the tracks'.

... the somewhat surrealistic look of combining natural and artificial light with a semi-wide-angle view is personally a lot of fun. But it is a flavor of built in irony that I am not sure a lot of 'young-people' can readily absorb. Being an artist working in the center of popular culture is always slightly schizophrenic.

... of course, if you are familar with my work, you know that this is shot 'in studio'. So it has the double weirdness of being an 'artificial' creation of something that is supposed to look artificial when it was a 'real' set-up.
