Located in the south of Buenos Aires, the neighborhood of La Boca was originally settled by a majority of immigrants, especially Italians who spoke a Genoese dialect called xeneize.
Low big houses of wood and zinc are still standing since the early 20th century, when they were built often with paint and remnants from the boats in the harbor.
You can still find some of the neighborhood barracks with their front sides painted in various flashy colors, and the typical tenements that used to harbor a mixture of languages and habits from very different origins. But the thing that remained the most in La Boca is that particular, passionate spirit from its very first neighbors.
In “Interiors of La Boca\" that Xeneize spirit is reflected, staying away from those vain and classic clichés of Buenos Aires neighborhood with the strongest visual identity and preserving that special atmosphere so distant from the noise and the frantic pace of the big city.
By Juan Travnik, curator of the Photogallery from San Martín Theatre (Buenos Aires)
