Zophia Dadlez is a 20 year old visual artist and musician from the Twin Cities, currently pursuing a BM in Music Education at the Eastman School of Music concurrently with a BA in French at the University of Rochester. She was accepted to NYU Tisch for a photography BFA, but it cost too damn much to attend and she turned out to love Rochester far more. (She's always had a weird affinity for Upstate New York). 

She loves overpriced coffee, her triplet siblings, college a cappella, exploring mid-sized cities, and occasionally wearing the costume she wore as Patty Simcox in the musical Grease as a normal outfit.

She hopes to accomplish a lot someday, but has healthily relinquished a long-standing fixation on being a child prodigy and accomplishing a lot right now. 

Her photographic process is ever-changing, using digital, 35mm and disposable cameras and various editing techniques to create little worlds.
