Hello, I am Aya Brace. I am a Finnish-Ghanaian photographer and graphic designer. This website focuses on my photography practice.

I hold a BA (Hons) in Fashion Photography from London College of Fashion and graduated from Pekka Halonen Academy in graphic design.

Currently based in Helsinki, I continue to work on my personal art as well as commissions, presenting fashion and people through a humanistic perspective, while exploring the unrivalled power of images in visualising change and beauty in today’s world. I am the co-founder and art director of ISLA Journal zine.
