Agencia EFE Marks 50 Years in Brazil with Amazonia Photo Exhibit

RIO DE JANEIRO – Agencia EFE, the world’s largest Spanish-language news agency, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its presence in Brazil with an Amazon-themed photo exhibit at Rio de Janeiro’s Botanical Gardens.

“Water and Life,” comprising more than 30 photographs taken by EFE professionals in Amazonia, showcases the diversity of the world’s largest tropical rainforest as pays tribute to Brazil’s natural riches.

The photographs depict lush Amazonian landscapes, as well as the daily lives of inhabitants and the region’s rich flora and fauna, aiming to take visitors on a tour of the largest freshwater reserve in the world.

The show – which will be open until June 30 – also highlights the consequences of deforestation and drought caused by climate change and human activities.

“The photo selection was taken from our reports on environmental and social events in the so-called Legal Amazonia,” the coordinator of EFE’s photography department in Brazil, Marcelo Sayao, said.

“Water and Life,” which is sponsored by Coca-Cola, Repsol, Empresa de Navegacion Elcano and Celeo Redes, opens Thursday with a breakfast event serving typical Amazonian fare.

EFE opened its Rio de Janeiro office 50 years ago and currently has bureaus in Brasilia and Sao Paulo, as well as collaborators in several other state capitals.

Founded in 1939, EFE is the leading Spanish-language news agency and the fourth-biggest overall.

With more than 3,000 professionals working in 120 countries, EFE generates nearly 3 million items per year in terms of text, photo, audio, video and multimedia.

In addition to its Spanish service, EFE produces content in Portuguese, English and Arabic.
