Sunil Gupta: From Here to Eternity
"What does it mean to be a gay Indian man? This is the question that follows me around everywhere I go and is still ever present in my work"
Joint winner of the 2021 Kraszna-Krausz Photography Book Award
From Here to Eternity traces Sunil Gupta’s life through his personal archive: the snapshots, postcards, letters, posters, and news clippings collected during his long career in photography and activism. These fragments of ephemera are annotated with Gupta’s handwritten notes, mapping a four-decade-long journey investigating the question what does it mean to be a gay Indian man?
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.
