Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer based in Los Angeles and Brooklyn who has gotten himself lost with a camera in over 41 countries. Not that anyone is counting. 

He enjoys investigating long-term stories, driving on backroads, and making pictures that focus attention, however fleetingly, on subjects of social and political consequence. He is uncomfortable writing in third person.

My work has been featured in publications where visual journalism is still valued such as TIME, The Atlantic, Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Politico Magazine, Pacific Standard, Smithsonian Magazine, The Telegraph UK, Internazionale, ViewFind, Burn Magazine, and The Intercept.

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