Heinz Hajek-Halke

Heinz Hajek-Halke | Backstage Rituals | Scoop.it

Heinz Hajek-Halke (1898–1983) was a German experimental photographer who co-founded the Fotoform group with Otto Steinert. He was born in Berlin in 1898 and spent part of his childhood in Argentina. He worked as a photo editor, press photographer and commercial artist, concentrating almost from the start on montage techniques. During World War II he lived quietly and photographed small animal life-forms. In 1949 he became a member of the German group fotoform and took part in the first of two subjektive fotografie exhibitions. Hajek-Halke was appointed lecturer in photography and graphic design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin in 1955. During his lifetime he published two books, Experimentelle Fotografie and Lichtgrafik.
