Of great interest, because of their quality as well as the importance of some of the authors: Mayo, Centelles, Alfonso, Torrents, Albero and Segovia, Gerda Taro, "Chim" (Seymour) and Robert Capa.

Most of the images presented in this collection introduce a new photographic concept: photographs as evidence of facts and as a vehicle for engagement with the republican cause. Most of the items are also original negatives.

Photographs are grouped into various series, for example: Madrid, Valencia, bombing, propaganda, Aragon Front, the Battle of the Ebro, the Motorised Brigade, International Brigades, demonstrations, etc.
