Baqteria – The Ghost Rider
When we think of the slums of an African country, we often think of poverty and people sitting blankly in front of squat houses made of corrugated iron. This is an image that has often been portrayed by Western photographers who – with good intentions – repeat the same stereotypes. Few will think of futuristic motorcyclists who customize their own motorcycles and at the same time are also award-winning supermodels. The Ghost Rider comes from Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi and shows us how in the slums, they are well able to create their own image.
