Digging a Little Deeper in BA

Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina

The following photos were taken in La Boca and Villa 20, which lies on the outskirts of Capital Federal. The Villa are neighbourhoods rarely visited by Portenos or tourists. They highlight the deep divide between extreme wealth and desperate poverty that have come to epitimise BsAs for me. The photos were taken to accompany an article written by my friend James Marrison for the Guardian Newspaper. Please use the below link to read the article in full.

One of the main streets of the Villa. To me this picture sums up the harsh life that people endure in the Villa.

It may be classed as a slum, but the residence still take a lot of pride in Villa 20.
