Sunil Gupta: From Here to Eternity
Library Shelf Location 18.GUPT
Publication Date 2020

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.

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.
