Everyone knows all the cool girls are really bookworms—what they don’t know is what all the cool bookworms are reading. You will now though; just follow along with this series as Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes Warby Parker helps us celebrate the literary life well lived.
There are photographers who document the world, and there are photographers who create worlds to document. New York-based lens pro Olivia Locher has a foot on both planets—and what a foot it is. (Her super charming DIY shoes caught our eye at the Jason Wu show at fall fashion week in New York.) At work for entities such as W magazine, she captures the drama and excitement of the backstage build-up at the shows, and while at work unraveling her own narratives and concepts, she stages series such as “I Fought the Law,” in which her subjects enact the fine art of breaking totally inane American rules from coast to coast. Exhibit A: “In Texas it is illegal for children to have unusual haircuts.” Huh? Yeah.
Here she is repping some Warby Parker sunnies, and here she is schooling us on texts of conceptual photography and ’70s ennui.
