Delhi-born, London-based designer Ashish Gupta studied fine art before pursuing his wildly successful career in fashion, and returned to art when he took up photography several years ago. Seeing the art form as a diary of sorts, he eventually collaborated with House of Voltaire on Gaze—a book of portraits that documents, explores and celebrates queer desire and masculinity. A departure from his trademark flashy style, the photos are intimate, personal and tender—but oftentimes maintain a playful energy. The 365 full-color images, Gupta says, “are full of joy, humor, longing, desire, (and more than a little feeling of tenderness) about sex and sexiness. It’s also about exploring images of sexuality and masculinity, but not just the type of images that we tend to see in the mainstream of gay culture.” Price is in Pounds.
