Photographer's Note

La Boca is a neighborhood south of Buenos Aires. La Boca is probably the most colorful neighborhood in Buenos Aires because of its history, customs, and their colors.

In La Boca, we found that there was the first port in Buenos Aires on the banks of famous river Riachuelo.

In every corner of La Boca, Buenos Aires, is the remarkable influence of European immigration, especially from Genovese Italians, who settled in the neighborhood of La Boca during the great migratory wave of the period 1860 to 1930.
The name of La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires due to the location where the "mouth" of the River Riachuelo ends in River La Plata.
