I Fought the Law

by New York-based photographer Olivia Locher. She was born in the woods of Johnstown, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Manhattan. Olivia Locher’s art is grounded in dreamlands and consciousness, while Olivia herself is generally dreaming. She breathes carefully and dances very rarely. With her ongoing series ‘I Fought the Law’ Olivia Locher depicts America’s most unusual laws.
