About Paradox

Paradox is a not for profit organisation founded in 1993. We develop projects around contemporary issues with documentary authors: photographers, filmmakers, visual artists, writers and researchers.

Paradox has developed more than 50 distinctive activities, travelling to some 120 venues worldwide. Paradox was founded with the aim of stimulating the development in photography. To reach this, Paradox produces travelling exhibitions, organises symposia and publishes audiovisual, digital and printed publications.

The recording of history as it is unfolding, and the interaction between social, economic and technical factors, with the changes in society which flow from these changes, are recurring aspects in both our thematic and monographic projects.
