Home By The River (2019- Work In Progress)

The uncertainty of belonging in a place where home becomes the river every year during monsoon, and gradually, home is becoming the river.

Home by the River is an attempt to understand the landscape and everyday lives of people living in Majuli, a river island, surrounded by the mighty Brahmaputra. It is about the empathy for a home; which for them is synonymously the island, and the river.

This work was an outcome of a photo residency in Majuli, Assam, Feb 2019. Organised by "Northeast Lightbox", a photo collective based in the northeast region of India.
