About the Artist
Agustí Centelles Ossó (b.1909 in Valencia – 1 December 1985 in Barcelona) was a Catalan photographer, working on the Republican side of the Spanish Civil War. As a refugee from Francoist Spain he was interned in France where he recorded life in the camp at Bram. He is considered one of the founders of Spanish photojournalism and has been called the “Spanish Robert Capa”, with a “direct, spare style” and “great skill with the miniature Leica which enabled him to follow and photograph scenes of the Civil War.”
