Elijah Solomon Hurwitz is an independent photographer based in the quiet canyon of Mount Washington, Los Angeles. Since finding a love for making pictures later in life, he has been drawn towards visually investigating underreported stories that might sharpen understanding of social and political realities as he wrestles with things himself. He attended Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI.

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.
