Sunil Gupta In The New Yorker and L'Oeil de la Photographie

Sunil Gupta's exhibition, Out and About: New York and New Delhi, is currently on view at Sepia Eye until December 20th.

"The Indian photographer lived in New York in the mid-nineteen-seventies, when he took the black-and-white photographs in his 'Christopher Street' series, shown here for the first time. His subjects are other gay men cruising the busy Village artery, dressed in the style of the time: bomber jackets, tight jeans, plaid shirts, aviator shades. But the work owes its frisson to more than just fashion; even when no glances are exchanged, Gupta gives his images a subtle erotic charge and a genuine tenderness." - The New Yorker
