We are extremely happy to announce that Sobras by Geraldo de Barros is the winner of Prix Nadar Gens d’images 2017.

The book Sobras is the first international publication devoted to this work, and sits somewhere between a historical tribute and artist book. Vanessa Barbara, a young Brazilian writer, compliments de Barros’ last photographs with a quirky short story inspired by his striking world, in which pitch blacks contrast with the dazzling white snow of his winter memories.
