The idea of creating an agency emerged in the late seventies, when Pedro Valtierra toured Central America as a correspondent for the newspaper Unomásuno directed by Manuel Becerra Acosta.
Living with professional photographers from around the world made him realize the importance of the image, the information value, its enormous strength and credibility and, above all, the need to record the social, political, economic, sporting and cultural life from a point independent views. It decided, as well, to create an information agency that he had no engagement except with the reality.
Through the agency it has passed many photographers, recognized today, who started from the young to deal with the photograph very spirit and enthusiasm. They have learned not to be afraid of light, to dominate the time and create good images, with the constant goal of becoming the best photojournalists.
Seven years after creating the agency, he founded the magazine Cuartoscuro where talk of all kinds and photographers in the country to cover the lack of space for works of authorship. Since 1994, this publication publishes quality photos of Mexico.
