A few of Heinz Hajek-Halke’s abstract chromogenic prints from later in his career.
I was inspired to return to the work of early experimental photographer Heinz Hajek-Halke by Cake or Death’s latest post (also here). Prior to World War II, Hajek-Halke worked as a press photographer and commercial artist in Germany. During this period he also focused on experimental montage technique as well as nude studies. He retreated from Berlin to Switzerland during the war, and continued pursuing experimental techniques. ‘Lichtgrafiken’ (light graphics), which were made without a camera, were some of his most important works (and will be featured in a future post).
