Demian Barrios: Hawaii's lava chaser

From Nine To Noon, 9:37 am on 25 May 2018

Kilauea has been erupting since the beginning of May - which has been a dream come true for self-confessed lava chaser, Demian Barrios. He's lived on Hawaii's Big Island for 2 decades, working as a photographer and documenting the active Kilauea. But since May 3rd, he's barely slept, trying to get to all the new fissures as they pop to take photographs. He's also been helping the local community keep in touch with where the danger zones are. He joins Kathryn to talk about the eruptions, his community and staying safe while following his passion.
