Hi! I'm Zophia (ZAW-fiah), a 23-year-old artist and musician from Saint Paul, MN. 

In May 2021 I graduated with a bachelor of arts in French from the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. 

I have been photographing passion projects and freelance work since 2013, and completed a remote collections internship with Visual Studies Workshop in the summer of 2020. For commission requests, questions, or just to get in touch, say hello by email!

note: as of October 2021, I am based in Lille, France.
