In Alabama it's illegal to have an ice cream cone in your pocket at all times

Crime scene images evidence wrongdoings; we take photographs as proof of something illicit. In her series I Fought the Law, young photographer Olivia Locher cleverly subverts what we think of when we think of crime and bad behavior.
