Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer usually based in Los Angeles. He enjoys investigating stories and making pictures that can add nuance and understanding to timely social and political issues as he tries to make sense of things himself. He attended Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI. He has a borderline obsession with the state of Vermont. He's going to stop writing in third person.

My work has appeared in: 

The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, WIRED, The Atlantic, TIME, Smithsonian Magazine, Mother Jones, The New Yorker, The Intercept, Politico Magazine, Huck Magazine, VICE, Pacific Standard, The Telegraph UK, Internazionale, and Feature Shoot.

I'm available for documentary, reportage, editorial, portrait, and news assignments.
