Born in New Delhi (1953) and growing up watching Bollywood films in all their glorious colour, Sunil Gupta moved to Montreal with his family in the late 1960s, where his interest in photography began to develop. From the mid-1970s he lived in New York, where he studied photography at the New School for Social Research under Lisette Model. At the end of the 1970s, Gupta moved to London to continue his studies at the Royal College of Art. He has worked to promote a greater understanding of questions regarding representation, sexuality, access and cultural differences. He works as a photographer, writer and curator. He is Visiting Professor of Photography at the National Institute of Design, Co-editor of Camerawork Delhi and a member of Nigah, a queer collective in Delhi. He lives between London and Delhi, and his work is represented by the Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi; Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto; Caprice Horn Gallery, Berlin; and Sepia Eye, New York.
