    REBORN―Platinum Print Series



"Bhutan is a small Buddhist country located at the Eastern end of the Himalayas.

Its size is about the same as Kyushu, Japan, but the country feels even larger. People in Bhutan not only respects the Buddhist deities but also the mother nature, so they don't build tunnels in mountains; every day they go back and forth the locations by following the landform. That is probably why time seems to pass by slowly and people have religious faith as deep as their valleys.


On my 4th visit to Bhutan, I started with the town Paro, home to their international airport, made a tour around the temples near Thimphu, the capital of the country, and walked the mountain tracks that connect to the North together with the nomads in order to visit the sacred peak. Then I traveled to the East for Bumthang in Central Bhutan, where many ancient temples exist. Tsechu festivals are held throughout the year and I was able to experience the Bhutanese people's strong religious faith during the festivals where the monks dance in masks and costumes." --- Nao Tsuda


Dedicated to depicting the relationship between human and nature in his photography, Tsuda's "REBORN" series focuses on the country Bhutan.

The stillness of time in the nature intertwines with the strong spirituality that lives within the people.


"REBORN -- Platinum Print Series" consists of 18 beautifully framed works carefully selected by the artist.
