Olivia Locher spiega come trasgredire 50 leggi americane assurde

Negli Stati Uniti ci sono leggi talmente inusuali da sembrare false, come ad esempio quella di non nascondere un cono gelato nella tasca posteriore dei propri pantaloni o il divieto di passeggiare per strada con un violino in un sacchetto di carta.
Nella sua serie I Fought the Law, la fotografa Olivia Locher “trasgredisce” tutte queste leggi con immagini stilose e satiriche che portano a pensare che spesso la realtà è anche più assurda dell’immaginazione. Dopo una ricerca condotta in tutti e 50 gli stati a partire dal 2014, I Fought the Law è diventato un libro già disponibile in preorder su Amazon.
