“Its nice eh? It’s a carpet with a carpet and a carpet. (laughing) Not really. I found it beautiful and I bought it. My daughter lives in an area where everyone is in black and grey. No colour. I thought, “This is not possible’.”

Photographer’s notes: How can you miss a rider bedecked like this? A series of four colourful, diverse panels all stitched together for a coat that could control conversations for ages. I turned the bike around in an instant and followed her along the road until we had a chance to speak.
