From Here To Eternity

POSTED: 06 November 2020

Watch a new film with Sunil Gupta, a personal tour of his major retrospective exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery.

As England enters national lockdown, Autograph’s exhibition projects have again temporarily closed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. This includes Sunil Gupta’s new retrospective From Here to Eternity, bringing together four decades of his photographic practice focused on race, migration and queer issues.

Our Director, Mark Sealy, worked closely with Gupta for nearly five years to develop the exhibition and accompanying book, a trans-Atlantic partnership between Autograph, The Photographers’ Gallery, and Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto. While the exhibition is closed, take a video tour with Gupta, as he tells the stories behind his life’s work as a photographer and activist.
