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.
