Leo Mascarinas is a retired information technology expert and multipotentialite. A man of varied passions and creative pursuits, Mascarinas is a modern-day Renaissance man -- as well as a former Board of Director of the Filipino Centre Toronto. Among his many talents and passions is photography, which was highlighted in 'Lights, Music & Words,' his photography exhibition held on September 10th, 2022.
This exhibition melded three forms of art: visual, literary and performing, into one beautiful showcase. Imagery depicted direct sources of light as key elements, all themed around a curated selection of musical works of various genres. The exhibit was tied together with short narratives drawn from Mascarinas' musical experiences as both a listener and performer.
Leo Mascarinas has been a member of the Toronto Camera Club since 2003. He is the first and only Filipino-Canadian to have reached the Masters Division and served as a Director on the Board.
The intimate exhibition displayed Mascarinas' works to a variety of people. Among these people include former and current FCT Board of Directors, UP graduates, and MP Shaun Chen.
