Forget Me Not by Thekla Ehling. A gentle memory and a farewell to love. Dedicated to Arno Fischer.

Kehrer Verlag presents new works by photographer Thekla Ehling. Her most recent series 'Vergiszmeinnicht' contains numerous references to nature, both in terms of experience with but also man's distance to nature.

Thekla dedicated the book to Berlin photographer Arno Fischer who died a few weeks ago. He documented details and still lifes in his garden in Polaroid photography. Vergiszmeinnicht (forget-me-not) symbolises tender memories and farewells in love.

In her last published series 'Sommerherz' (summer heart), the photographer from Cologne documented how her children grew up (as reported by GoSee). She captured situations and moods, which would trigger associations and memories from our own childhoods. Children once again play an important and emotional role in Vergiszmeinnicht.

The Städtische Galerie Schloss Borbeck in Essen is home to an exhibition with works from the series, which will remain on display until the 20th of November 2011.
