Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer based in the coyote-teeming canyon of Mount Washington, Los Angeles. He is pulled towards investigating underreported stories and making pictures that might sharpen understanding of social and political issues as he makes sense of things himself. Originally from the standard-issue suburbs of the Baltimore-Washington area, he now finds himself drawn to places like rural Vermont, upstate New York, and Joshua Tree. 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, Telegraph UK, and Internazionale.
I'm available for documentary, reportage, portrait, and news assignments.
