The artist and designer Geraldo de Barros (1923-1998) is a giant in the field of Brazilian photography, despite the fact that during his long, distinguished career, photography only played a relatively minor role, topping and tailing a trajectory dedicated mainly to painting and to furniture design.

This exhibition at SESC Vila Mariana features two series of artworks by the paulista artist: ‘Jogos de Dados’, a set of 55 geometric paintings made on Formica, and ‘Sobras’. The latter is the only formal photographic series created by de Barros other than his famous ‘Fotoformas’, which he made in the late-1940s and early 1950s.

In ‘Sobras’, created in the two years before his death, de Barros, debilitated by a number of strokes, was assisted by the photographer Ana Moraes in creating new works from vintage photos from his family archive, cutting into the negatives to form striking, unforgettable new compositions, captured between glass slides. The images are shown as projections onto large screens in the exhibition, along with another projection showing the process of their creation.

The compact, rewarding show is timed to coincide with the release of a beautiful book covering de Barros’s entire career (Geraldo de Barros: Isso, Edições Sesc SP).
