Heinz Hajek-Halke is one of the undiscovered geniuses of early twentieth century experimental photography. He surmounted the purely documentary nature of photography in the turbulent 1920s and developed a variety of aesthetically challenging photo-manipulation techniques which he applied to both personal and commissioned advertising work.\nHis techniques were the innovative forerunner of digital photography and web design.\nThis large-format monograph is the first extensive review of Hajek-Halke’s work, encompassing all the creative phases of his career – his nude photography, photo-montages, picture stories, macro-biological images and the abstract Lichtgrafiken (light graphics) of his later work. It contains reproductions of his vintage prints and an abundance of other material, including photo collages, magazine advertisements, dust jackets for books, and graphic designs.
