Christian Uhlig was born on February 22, 1964 in Hannover, Germany. During his childhood he spent numerous days in fields & forests and reading about adventures from the “High North”. Thanks to his parents and several journeys to Norway in the 70s and 80s his dream to live in the Arctic evoke.
Following his fascination for nature he studied environmental science and completed his theses on impacts of heavy metal pollution on arctic ecosystems (Dipl. Geoecology, Univ. of Bayreuth; Agroecology PhD, Univ. of Kiel).
After moving to Tromsø in 1990, Christian Uhlig spend most of his free time with outdoor life in Northern Norway. Beside numerous private tours, he functioned as a tour leader and tour leader instructor for The Norwegian Tourist Association (DNT). He also worked as a tour Guide on Spitzbergen. From 1997 to 2015 he was employed at the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO, Tromsø) as a researcher.
In 2008 Christian Uhlig was diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder (Kennedey disease), which slowly but progressively reduces his physical abilities. Unable to continue his “normal” outdoor life he turned towards nature photography. Inspired by the amplified expressional possibilities of time-lapse photography he launched the “An Arctic Fairy Tale” project autumn 2014. Finished four years later, “An Arctic Fairy Tale” received acknowledgments at several international film festivals, e.g. “Award of Excellence” (Accolade 2020, Nature/ Environment/ Wildlife), Nominee “Eisenstein Award” (Blow-Up Chicago International Arthouse Film Fest 2020), Nominee “Golden Fox Award” (Calcutta International Cult Film Festival 2020, Nature/ Environment/ Wildlife), Best Nature/ Travel Film” (ECA 2019), Nominee “Best Nature/ Travel Film” (New York Cinematography Awards 2019).
Enthused by the novelty that an almost 40 minutes long entirely time-lapse created film could make a contribution to nature films, Christin Uhlig begun to work on a succeeding film entitled “Lights And Landscapes Of Northern Norway”, which was completed in June 2021.
Christian Uhlig`s overall motivation as a filmmaker is to experience, document and share some of the exceptional beauty of Arctic Nature.
