Yasmine Iddriss is a woman designer and photographer based in Accra, Ghana. The passage is her bio, in her own words.
"A minimalist at heart. I live and breathe design. It’s a core element in my being.
As a visual artist, everything I’m exposed to fuels my creativity.

Driven by the goal of trying to make an ugly world beautiful in whatever way I can."
