Alfredo Bosco was born in Italy. After graduating from the John Kaverdash School of Photography in Milan, in 2010 he covered Haiti’s earthquake aftermath and on the following year the young generation of Tashkent (Uzbekistan).

Former Soviet countries have been the focus of many of his works, which dealt with topics such as the situation of the LGBTQ community in Moscow, Kazakhstan under the power of Nazarbayev, and the problem of heroin in Kyrgyzstan. From 2014 to 2017 he reported on the civil war in Donbass, in Eastern Ukraine, with a long-term work portraying the conflict between the Ukrainian government and the pro-Russian separatist forces.

In 2018 he was selected for the Joop Swart Masterclass of the World Press Photo and realised a project on the millennials who live in Italy’s suburbs. At 2019’s Andrei Stenin Contest, he was awarded with the special prize of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Currently, he is working on a long-term project on the drug war in the Mexican state of Guerrero.
