2010年より始まった「REBORN」シリーズは、世界で唯一チベット仏教を国教として守り伝えるブータン王国を撮影地としています。古くから神仏や自然界への畏敬の念が培われ、宗教が人々の生活に深く根差すこの地で、津田は仏教の原点や信仰の在り方について探求し続けてきました。チベット仏教で 信じられている輪廻転生を意味する「REBORN」と名づけられた本シリーズには、ブータン各地に点在する数々の寺院や僧院、その内奥に暮らす僧侶たち、繰り広げられる宗教的な祭りなど、ヒマラヤの厳しい自然に寄り添うように何世紀にも渡り守られてきた信仰と伝統の姿が写し取られています。

The “REBORN” series, which Tsuda began in 2010, is shot in Bhutan, the only Tibetan Tantric Buddhist nation in the world. Tsuda has explored the origin and contemporary practice of Buddhism in Bhutan, a place where religion is deeply rooted in people’s lives and there is a tradition of reverence for deities, Buddhas and the natural world. This series takes its title from the Tibetan Tantric Buddhist belief in reincarnation, and the images here document the practice and tradition of this religion, which has been practiced over centuries in Bhutan in close proximity to the harsh natural conditions of the Himalayas. Tsuda has captured Bhutan’s many temples and monasteries, along with their monks and the religious festivals and rituals that are practiced inside them.
