Luis Alonso started his way in the world of fashion at the age of 18 with Vanity Teen Magazine, where he currently serves as Deputy Editor.
It was his love for print magazines and his participation in Vanity Teen, what eventually motivated his interest in developing this photographic genre.
He was born in November 1992 in the Cristo Rey neighborhood of Alajuela, the only child of a lower-middle-class family. He grew up with few toys, old magazines, and a small black-and-white television screen, until he got his first 35mm camera at age 7 when he was in school, a time when he began his exploration of photography.
As he grew watching his grandmother, father and mother sew, tucked between fabrics and the sound of the machine, his taste and interest for fashion was forged.
