    Fourth-year Fine Arts student Ranz Bontogon recently released a photobook, Sa Pilipinas, capturing his journey of reconnecting with his roots in the Philippines.
“My main practice as an emerging artist is film photography,” says Bontogon. “I spent many hours in the photo studio producing photographic prints and developing films. I started my project in the summer of 2023 by rolling films to get ready for my trip back home.” 
This reflection comes after he was awarded the prestigious Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts & Music Award. Ranz received $6,000 to fund his project under the supervision of Leah Garnett, associate professor and head of the Pierre Lassonde School of Fine Arts.
“Winning the Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts & Music Award meant the world to me. It was my opportunity to show my home and represent Filipino culture, its people, and the Filipino community that lives here in Canada.”
Bontogon is pursuing a degree in Fine Arts, minoring in art history with a certificate in Visual Literacy and Culture, and is set to graduate in May 2024. 

The Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts & Music Award funds projects outside of regular University activities, focusing on fine arts, music, and other visual and performing arts, focusing on outward facing, collaborative, interdisciplinary, or community engagement projects.


Sa Pilipinas is available for purchase at the Owens Art Gallery, Struts Gallery, and Tidewater Books & Browsery.
