Pictures From Here
Born in New Delhi in 1953, photographer Sunil Gupta grew up in Montreal before studying photography in New York and establishing himself as an artist and curator in London. His story unfolds in this artist's monograph, the first survey of his photography from over twenty-five years of work, drawing on eight major series of pictures and with his own narrative text. This is powerful autobiographical photography, both political and intimate, that addresses being a gay Indian man in Europe torn between cultures, in a form of exile, and in a personal struggle with the HIV virus. A milestone in art's engagement with race and homosexuality, this book accompanies exhibitions of Gupta's work being shown across North America.
