I am Paul. This website is the culmination of some of the most important interest in my life. Photography, Philosophy, Finding Truth, Personal Growth, Psychology and Discussions about all things Meta. Welcome!

I was born in the early 1980s in Eastern Germany and the rapid changes following reunification impacted me deeply. I have a passion for photography and pursue my lifelong search for meaning and truth. This website is my attempt at putting it all together with images and words.

You will find here posts about photography, pictures and their stories, small essays about different topics, some personal stories and maybe the occasional absurd satire. But I will try to keep the focus on pictures and their stories. Sometimes one image will be like an anchor for a wider discussion sometimes it is just an image.

I encourage discussion and I’d love to hear your ideas. Even if you think what I write is stupid, wrong, offensive, unfunny or morally repugnant please tell me in the comments or use the contact form. We can only ever learn from each others differences. I will only delete comments that are either spam, promote criminal activity or are blatantly hateful.


All images shown on this website (except when noted otherwise) are the sole intellectual property of myself (as “thedullchannel”). If you are interested in using one of my pictures please contact me. For non-profit work I can usually provide you with a creative commons license (and a high res version of course).

Please do not link directly to the pictures but to the accompanying blog post. Thank you.

You can use this form to contact me. I will try to answer you as fast as possible. If you feel uncomfortable using a contact form you can email me at thedullchannel[at]mailbox.org
