PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK AWARD WINNERS EVENT

Tuesday 1 June 2021, 6.30-8.00pm

Sunil Gupta and Maria Kapajeva in conversation, chaired by Monica Allende

Sunil Gupta and Maria Kapajeva will discuss their award-winning books in this live-streamed event. Joining them is curator and editor Monica Allende, who will be chairing the conversation. There will be an opportunity for audience Q&As following the discussion.

The artists will discuss common threads shared by both their books – including the power of community, use of personal archival material and how lived experience can be distilled into book form.

In ‘From Here to Eternity’ Sunil Gupta’s unique vision and political practice is explored alongside his activism and instrumental efforts for LGBTQ+ rights across his career. The book weaves in intimate family and personal moments from Gupta’s past to form a detailed and richly personal portrait of the artist.

Maria Kapajeva’s book, ‘Dream is Wonderful, Yet Unclear is an extraordinary journey through contemporary social history and personal memory. Drawing on experiences of her childhood community in Estonia in the lead up to re-independence from Soviet occupation, Kapajeva’s beautifully designed publication explores female collectivity, community and independence.
