Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer based in the quiet canyon of Mount Washington, Los Angeles. He feels pulled towards investigating underreported stories and making pictures to help sharpen understanding of social and political issues as he makes sense of things himself. He attended Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI.
My work has appeared in:
The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, Wired, The Atlantic, TIME, Smithsonian Magazine, Mother Jones, The New Yorker, High Country News, The Intercept, Politico Magazine, Huck Magazine, Vice, Pacific Standard, and Internazionale.
I'm available for documentary, reportage, portrait, and news assignments.
