A Legend's Son Picks up a Camera

Fernando Cano's greatest claim to fame has to be his parentage: He's the son of famed Colombian newspaper editor Guillermo Cano, who was gunned down in La Candelaria in 1986 on orders of Pablo Escobar.

Rather than a typewriter, the younger Cano picked up a camera. His photos, of indigenous people, a homeless man and everyday scenes of humble people, are on display now in the Museo de Arte Moderno in Bogotá.
