Sunil Gupta was born in New Delhi, India in 1953 and moved to Montreal with his family in the late 1960s, where his interest in photography was stimulated.
In the late 1970s, he lived in New York, where he studied photography at the New School for Social Research under Lisette Model. Gutpa then moved to London, England, to continue his studies at the Royal College of Art.
He has exhibited widely all over the world and published several books, including Queer (Vadehra Art Gallery/Prestel 2011) and Wish You Were Here (Yoda Press, New Delhi 2008).

Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
