Descending into active volcanoes in Vanuatu, discovering new animal species in the dense jungle in Papua New Guinea or photographing a traditional mummification - this is the daily routine of film and photojournalist Ulla Lohmann. She works for the most well-known media including National Geographic, GEO, Stern View, Terra Mater, ZDF and the BBC.
She has been travelling the South Seas since she was 18 years old and has experienced many exciting stories there. Ulla Lohmann takes the audience with her gripping lecture along the Pacific fire belt into a foreign world, which has become a second home for her. "One of the most beautiful spots on earth for me," says the photographer, who originally comes from a small village in the Palatinate.
Through her profession Ulla has fulfilled a life's dream; to stand once very close to the crater lake of an active volcano, where no human being has ever been before.
With her lecture on the IMS stage on Monday, 8th October 2018, she wants to encourage people to live their own dreams.
