This body of work attempts to explore the catastrophic impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic in my hometown, Jorhat, Assam.

I have spent all my years of being in this town but I have never seen it so silent and empty.

There is a sense of eeriness and decay all around and I have tried to capture that through my lens.

It is a metaphorical approach to show the apocalyptic situation, how everything has come to a standstill and the nature is reclaiming its place. How people are facing a labyrinth, it seems we are repeating the same day, every day.





This is an ever- expanding spiral of environmental degradation that we have brought upon ourselves. The heedless tendency of the humans to over-consume everything available in the nature has been the cause for the widespread of this virus. But it has proved to be a blessing in disguise for the planet. The nature has benefited the most out of this Pandemic. As the human intervention slowed down, nature started healing itself and reclaimed the spaces around.

It makes us realize how recklessly we have treated the nature and how it could have been had we lived life a little differently.
