Hales is pleased to announce a new publication by Sunil Gupta. From Here to Eternity was published by Autograph and edited by Mark Sealy in association with The Photographers' Gallery, London; and Ryerson Image Centre, Toronto.
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, on now at The Photographers’ Gallery, and touring to Ryerson Image Centre, Toronto in 2021.
