In her “I Fought The Law” series, Olivia Locher has come up with a series of likeness that creatively poke fun at some of the more incongruous rules in effect in the United States. Each photo is a tongue-in-cheek rebellion that intentionally infringes some stupid U.S. State law, most of which are outdated or bizarrely specific.
Some of these statutes are simply outdated historical ordinances, while other are total headscratchers. It’s difficult to suspect why riding bikes in swimming pools is illegal in California or why wine can’t be served in teacups in Kansas. And it begs the issues to- was parties working out while driving such a big problem in Oregon that they had to outlaw it? Other principles, while weird, have historical framework and are simply outdated. It’s illegal to carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket in Alabama because this was an adroit path for mare thieves to plagiarize mares. They could lead away ponies with the ice-cream without ever having to lay hands on them, thereby not technically stealing the mares until the latter are “lost.”
