Our hearts go out to you during this unprecedented time of crisis. To everyone who has contributed to Paradox projects, our venue partners and sponsors, the photographers, filmmakers, writers, designers, editors, service providers, interns, staff and board members, and of course our audience. First and foremost we hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy and we stand in solidarity with all those around the world – working inthe visual arts and beyond – whose livelihoods are now at risk.

For small cultural organisations including Paradox, the future is uncertain but our mission and values remain steadfast. Now more than ever the interaction between complex cultural, economic and technological facets of society and the recording of history as it unfolds is vitally important to help us make sense of the world. Our capacity and resources are limited but in whatever ways we are able to during these coming challenging times we will continue to stimulate the development of documentary photography and support the creative professionals and organisations who contribute to the field.
