Dutch photographer Jan Hoek has documented these vibrant Nairobi street characters in a series of photographs called Boda Boda Madness (Motorcycle Crazy). Thanks to the new outfit, the revenue for the Mototaxists increased, so they are actively using their costumes. And if you suddenly find yourself in Nairobi, perhaps one of them will become your taxi driver. Mad Max Red Devil Rasta Lion Ghost Vybes Machete all photos: © Jan Hoek
