Statement published on behalf of Attila Pőcze, Director of the Vintage Gallery, Budapest
I, the undersigned Attila Pőcze, as Director of the Vintage Gallery based in Budapest, Hungary, recognise that I acted incorrectly during the sale of photographs taken by Hungarian photographer Dezső Révai (alias Turai, 1903-1996). I further recognise that my actions caused emotional and financial distress to the copyright holders and therefore wish to extend my apologies.
The Metro Madrid series of photographs taken in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and the bombardment of Madrid is currently owned by the University Museum of Navarra in Spain (Museo Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona). Gurs, another series of photographs taken after the Spanish Civil War in the internment camp in France in 1939, is now owned by the Immigration History Museum of Paris (Musée de l’Histoire de l’Immigration, Paris).
