Gupta was an active figure in the cultural politics of London in the 1980s, notably through the British Black Arts movement and Autograph ABP (Association of Black Photographers). In his photographs he explores the identity of people who are marginalised due to their race, sexuality or country of origin. Coronet Cinema, Notting Hill Gate is an autobiographical image. It shows a couple (Gupta and his white lover) posing outside a cinema advertising the 1985 film My Beautiful Laundrette, the story of a romance between an Asian man and a white man.
