Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent documentary photographer based in Los Angeles and Brooklyn who has gotten himself lost with a camera in 41 countries, not that he's counting or anything. He enjoys investigating long-term stories, driving on backroads, and making pictures that focus attention, however fleetingly, on issues of social, political, or environmental consequence. He is uncomfortable writing in third person. 

My work has been featured by: 

TIME, The Atlantic, The Los Angeles Times, Smithsonian Magazine, Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Politico Magazine, Huck Magazine, Pacific Standard, The Telegraph UK, Internazionale, Burn Magazine, and Humble Arts.

I've also completed assignments for The Intercept, United Nations Development Programme, UCLA Magazine, USC Gould School of Law, The Thacher School, and Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences.

I'm available for editorial, reportage, environmental portrait, and news assignments in the US and internationally.
