While studying at the New School in NYC under Lisette Model, Sunil Gupta would spend his weekends cruising on Christopher Street with his camera. It was the heady days after Stonewall and before AIDS when Gupta and his peers were busy creating a gay public space that hadn’t been seen before. This beautiful sold out book features a series of his street photographs taken in Christopher Street.

“I came to photography in the early 1970s. What was initially just a hobby quickly found a purpose in the fledgling gay liberation movement, documenting gay rights marches as well as the burgeoning gay scene. In retrospect these pictures have become both nostalgic and iconic for a very important moment in my personal history.”
