Strange and outdated laws from each of the 50 states-some long overturned, some still on the books, and some merely the stuff of legend-are depicted with sly wit in Olivia Locher's vibrant photographs. Incisive, ironic, and drop-dead gorgeous, I Fought the Law is perfect for humour-loving hipsters, fine art photo fans, and trivia buffs alike. A foreword from American poet Kenneth Goldsmith and an interview with the artist by Eric Shiner, former director of the Andy Warhol Museum, contextualise Locher's work.
