Sunil Gupta – ‘Being in the Dark Room is Healing’

Photographer Sunil Gupta talks about how his work in the dark room helped him deal with his HIV positive diagnosis. Sunil Gupta was born in New Delhi in 1953 and went to New York City in the 70s to study business. While there he began to photograph the city’s gay community and continued to use the same subject matter for his subsequent photography series in both India and the UK. A pioneering documenter of LGTBQ stories and relationship – some images from his Ten Years On series are currently on show in Tate Britain’s Sixty Years display. Created by Tate.
