Eliot Lee Hazel seems to embrace the mysterious. His photography is theatrical yet remains bare which is one of the reasons I was so drawn to his work. I began pulling images to feature after I came upon this L.A.-based photographer’s work last week, but I quickly realized that I had practically put aside his entire online portfolio.
In a way Eliot’s photos remind me of the old Stereoscopic apparatuses where you could look into them and they seemed like far off three dimensional worlds. The soft edges, arresting colors, and alluring subjects all add to the stories told through his camera.
