Agustín Centelles

Agustín Centelles was a Spanish photographer who documented the Spanish Civil War - a brutal, bloody affair, as civil wars always are. Warning: some of these photos are quite intense.

  2. Sorry to rectify but according to other source, the 4th picture is a meeting of the POUM in Barcelona in 1937 (these people don't seem to be inmates of the camp of Brams) and the 5th is another one from the bombardment of Lérida (Zaragoza stayed in hands of fascist army and has never been bombed).
    Thanks for your beautiful job, anyway, and excuse my bad english.
