Spring 2007 - Isaac Julien and Sunil Gupta

Looking for Langston: Images by Isaac Julien and Sunil Gupta

The photographs that comprised the exhibition, Looking for Langston: Images by Isaac Julien and Sunil Gupta, were taken by filmmaker Isaac Julien and cinematographer Sunil Gupta, during the filming of Julien’s groundbreaking film of the same name. Looking for Langston is a metaphoric reflection on African American poet Langston Hughes and is a non-linear narrative that includes footage of 1920’s Harlem and unflinchingly explores his life as a gay man.
