Pictures from Paradise: A Survey of Contemporary Caribbean Photography seeks to examine the ways in which contemporary photography has evolved within the English-speaking Caribbean, rising beyond idyllic scenes to tackle more intricate issues. Within the past few years, regional artists working with the medium of fine art photography have provided increasingly searching images of the Caribbean and the people who inhabit it.
