‘Eli’s portfolio is a stunning ensemble of eclectic but cohesive photographs. Technically, visually and psychologically, his series bring a lot to the viewer. The photographs are powerful and do not need any subtext to read them. A brilliant catharsis for viewers, a dark but enjoyable trip...’ Pauline Vermare (International Center of Photography, New York, USA).
