What follows is the take of a photographer, Olivia Locher, on a series of laws across USA that she finds weird. The title of her work is ‘I Fought the Law’ and she has depicted her point of view via photographs. When asked about how she came up with the idea for this, she said; ‘A friend brought up in conversation that it’s illegal to carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket. A long period of time passed from that conversation but I kept finding myself thinking about it. Then I did some initial research and quickly discovered that there wasn’t a shortage of interesting laws. I knew it would be a great photography project!’

    RE: New Mexico – this is to prevent idiots from defacing rocks that have ancient Indian petroglyphs on them.

    RE: Maryland – Most likely this is to prevent eco-warriors from driving nails into trees. Which causes lumberjack chainsaws to bounce back out of the tree (or the chain blade to break and whip out) and potentially kill ir maim the chainsaw operator.

    As for Utah: I’ve lived here over 40 years and couldn’t start to guess!
