�I have been photographing different aspects of Majuli over the decade, but I must admit that there is still a lot to be covered,� said Goswami adding that there is so much to the life and culture of Majuli that it would take him many more years to cover every detail of the island.

It needs to be mentioned here that this exhibition will highlight the Sattriya art and culture, the way of living of the Mising community, the bio-diversity, the connectivity etc., of the island.

�I have avoided taking the photographs of erosion and other natural calamities afflicting the river island because these problems are not singular to Majuli alone, but common to many other parts of the State. I am determined to show the creative facet of the river island to the people,� said Goswami.

The little known aspects of Majuli, like the pottery of the Heera-Kumar community has been captured by Goswami.
