Paul Hoppe (paulhoppe-photography)

My name is Paul. I am a documentary photographer from Germany.

I was born in the 1980s in what was then called the German Democratic Republic (Eastern Germany) and went to primary school behind the Iron Curtain. The rapid changes after reunification impacted me deeply and opened my eyes for the kind and pace of change. I grew up in Germany’s capital Berlin and was able to witness the amalgamation of two systems and the accompanying developments. I think this sparked my early interest in documenting these changes.

I am very passionate about the pursuit of truth and meaning and I am always trying to learn more about society, economics, psychology, philosophy, arts and culture and of course urban life. I want to use images or set of images as an anchor for these different topics. I want to document the life around me. Tell stories and evoke emotions.
