Hernán Toro in Cali
In 1975 I went back to Cali for the first time after two years in Toronto, in the company of Margaret Thurlow, who was teaching me photography at the time.
The very next day while walking in the downtown area, trying to get my memories in place, I ran into one of my dearest friends on planet Earth, the writer Hernán Toro. We had one of the street photographers in Puente Ortiz take a picture of us in the company of Margaret. Hernán still lives in Cali where he teaches literature at Universidad del Valle.
The photographers in the bridge and the adjacent park disappeared many years ago.
