Ecuador Hosts Celebration of EFE’s 75th Anniversary

QUITO – Agencia EFE, the world’s largest Spanish-language news agency and No. 4 overall, begins the Americas phase of its 75th anniversary observances with the opening in Ecuador of a photo exhibit.

“EFE, 75 Years in Photos” opens Wednesday at Quito’s Itchimbia Cultural Center.

The exposition features images of iconic Latin Americans such as Cantinflas, Che Guevara and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and of important events, including the 1940 meeting of Adolf Hitler and Francisco Franco, the Sept. 11 attack in New York, Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake and the election last year of Pope Francis.

Ecuador is also well represented, with moments from the September 2010 police mutiny that saw President Rafael Correa held hostage inside a hospital, scenes of Amazonia and the Tungurahua volcano and souvenirs of the international exploits of Ecuadorian athletes.

Agencia EFE President Jose Antonio Vera will formally inaugurate the exhibit, which is set to travel to other Latin American nations over the course of this year.

The exposition recounts the history of the past 75 years to illustrate the evolution of EFE, which established its first bureaus in the Americas in the 1960s.

All the photos come from EFE’s archive, which has nearly 15 million images.

The collection highlight the value of the – often dangerous – labor of photojournalists.

“EFE, 75 Years in Photos” has benefited from the sponsorship of Repsol, Banco Pichincha, Copa Airlines, Diario El Telegrafo and the Casa Damian restaurant.

Agencia EFE’s more than 3,000 professionals from 60 countries produce 3 million news items a year, along with 900,000 photos, 40,000 videos and 40,000 audio reports.
