About Caroline Federle

Born in Columbus Indiana, Caroline Federle is a photographic artist whose work addresses female genitalia, sexuality, and expression in a region where it is not frequently discussed. Caroline is a recent graduate from Indiana University, completing a BFA in Photography and a Certificate in Journalism. Upon the completion of her BFA, Caroline’s thesis show titled Unsanctioned Splendor received recognition for its commentary addressing stigmas of the female body from the university and has been featured in Strange Fire Collective’s Call and Response: Art as Resistance and the Fuller Project’s Dreamscapes: A Light and Dark Interpretation. Caroline now resides in New York City and is currently interning in the Imaging and Visual Resources department at the Museum of Modern Art this fall.
