Barbhuyan’s work transcends mere documentation; adopting a contemplative stance that leaves room for emotions and memory. The artist’s oeuvre develops from documentation into an exploration of emotions and memory that's then infused into his images. Elevating everyday scenes into poetic vignettes rooted in a deep appreciation for the ordinary and mundane, he invites viewers to immerse themselves in the immortal beauty of nostalgia that's intertwined with sisterhood.

His body of work mirrors his reverence for nature and his acute sensitivity towards human existence. A visual artist from New Delhi, he uses this medium to create melancholic, intimate portraits that create a bond between him as an artist and those who observe them.

Every frame by Barbhuyan invites one to pause, think, and perhaps remember how they used to enjoy simple things in life. Barbhuyan’s images are gateways into a world where sisterhood is worshipped and childhood dreams are stored forever; its passage is marked by gentle rivers that carry one back to the innocence of youth. Barbhuyan’s photographic journey is a soothing balm in an uncertain world of confusion; a reminder of the everlasting connections that hold us together.
