Together with OHNE DEN HYPE, Forward welcomes you inside the mind of creatives, artists and designers! In intimate and personal conversations with Forward-speakers, industry legends and creative shooting stars, the podcast revolves around personal topics – completely without the hype that usually surrounds them. This sixteens edition is about the photographer and filmmaker Johannes Höhn – but to his nearly 500,000 Instagram followers he is better known as Pangea.


Pangea is Johannes Höhn a photographer and filmmaker based in Cologne, Germany. He haa a strong passion for photography and videography related to the outdoor, urban, sports and lifestyle world. He has a keen eye for detail and is always on the lookout for new and unique perspectives. His passion for capturing the raw beauty of the world drives him to travel and explore different places.

His intention as a photographer is to blur the boundaries between urban and landscape photography by experimenting with new ideas and techniques. He strives to create a unique picture language that captivates the viewer and evokes emotion. He has a decade of experience in the field of photography and videography and he brings that experience and skill set to every project he works on.



In this episode Sven and Johannes have talked before, so this time they only talked briefly about his background, more about what he does today, that he is ironically a long-distance person, that he produces quite a bit in breathtaking nature, about what motivates him to try new things, editing and data overload, about learning processes and about AI – with which he is experimenting a lot right now.

Listen to the full episode for a look at Johannes’s creative present and future.
