Moments from protests, the black arts movement in Britain, the fight for representation in photography and beyond, and Gupta’s work around queer visibility in India are shared – alongside mementoes from friends, family and relationships. What emerges is a powerful, and deeply personal, record of the artist’s struggles, victories, and a life lived through the complex politics of social change.
Published to accompany the major exhibition From Here to Eternity: Sunil Gupta. A Retrospective at The Photographers’ Gallery, London 9 Oct 2020 – 24 Jan 2021; and touring to Ryerson Image Centre Gallery, Toronto autumn 2021.
