American cinematographer who pioneered hand held work, lighting techniques and HD development during his career. He has an impressive list of films, but will probably be remembered mainly for Chinatown (1974) and Scarface (1983).
Alonzo was not only the Director of Photography for some of the greatest American films of the ‘70s and ‘80s, but also the first American cinematographer of Mexican American and Latino heritage to become a member of the Cinematographer’s Union in Los Angeles.
