David Alvarado


David Alvarado is a Mexican-American documentary-editorial photographer and producer from Los Angeles and currently resides in México City. He first gained recognition for his work in 2009 when he was featured in high-profile global media outlets while serving as a war photographer for US-NATO Forces covering military operations in Afghanistan. A departure from military service in 2012 led to years of extensive travel around the world and gaining a deeper understanding of what connects us as humans through the narratives of individual and collective experiences. This ability to engage with people from all walks of life brings a high level of intimacy, vulnerability, and truth to his work.

David is a graduate of the New York Film Academy, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and Berklee College of Music.
