In 1996 Geraldo begin a new serie of Photography, the Sobras (Remains). With the help of an assistant, he creates collages of negatives on glass plates re-using his old negatives from the 50’s or family images. This work will be shown at first in 1998 at Ludwig Museum in Köln/Germany a few month after de Barros died in São Paulo at the age of 75.
