"With a childhood full of love you can endure a whole life". (Jean Paul) Never has the sensation of time been so intense and long as in childhood. The days seemed endless. Whether in summer or winter, time was filled with games and discoveries, visits to grandparents, showers in the outdoor pool, hiking in the forest, building snowmen and ghost stories. Thekla Ehling documents such childhood experiences in this exhibition. She accompanied her daughters with her camera for more than ten years.

The book SOMMERHERZ was published by Kehrer Verlag to accompany the exhibition.

Supported by the city of Neuenhaus and the state of Lower Saxony.
