“Most people discard their childhood like an old hat. They forget it like a phone number which is no longer current. They see their lives like a salami which is eaten bit by bit, and what has been eaten doesn’t exist any more.”
Erich Kästner (1899 – 1977)

With the series Summer Heart, the Cologne photographer keeps pace with the growing up of her children. She documents situations and moods and the viewers find themselves entangled in connotations and memories of their own childhoods.
Ehling’s pictures often show moments of isolation, in which a young spirit seems to regard itself as if in a trance. There are preoccupied looks, evidently comparing a current event with one already experienced. The question of how far each mechanism of the subconscious connects to the discovery of individual identity is deliberately left open by Ehling. One sees in the series that, long ago, the photographer internalised the specific premises of family photography. She herself names the two Dutch portrait photographers Hellen van Meene and Rineke Dijkstra as references.

In 2007, Summer Heart was shown in the “Rencontres Internationales de le Photographie” in Arles. Thekla Ehling was born in 1968 in Bielefeld, studied photography at the Dortmund Polytechnic under Professor Arno Fischer. She lives and works in Cologne.
