California’s ban on bikes in swimming pools – and other strange laws on the books

In California, bicycles are not allowed in swimming pools. In Delaware, it’s illegal to consume perfume. These are among the bizarre and obscure laws that have made their way into America’s state and local legislation and that photographer Olivia Locher chose to document in her latest collection of photographs, “I Fought the Law.”

Locher began the project after a friend told her that it’s illegal in Alabama to have an ice cream cone in your back pocket. “That idea, it kept haunting me for many months,” she said from New York City’s Steven Kasher Gallery, where the exhibition is now on display. I got really interested in the legal aspects of the laws and how it affects our everyday lives.”
