Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer based in the coyote-teeming canyon of Mount Washington, Los Angeles. He enjoys investigating stories, studying light, and making pictures to sharpen understanding of various socio-political issues as he makes sense of things himself. Originally from the Baltimore-Washington area, he has a borderline obsession with rural Vermont and upstate New York. He attended Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI. He will now stop writing in third person.

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, The Intercept, Politico Magazine, Huck Magazine, VICE, Pacific Standard, The Telegraph UK, and Internazionale.

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