Heinz Hajek-Halke, German experimental photographer, 1898–1983. 

He experimented with photographic techniques — among them light montages, double exposures, photo collages and photo montages. One special technique is “combi-photography,” in which Hajek-Halke mounted several negatives for one print. His pictures were innovative and made use of the newly discovered possibilities for manipulating photographs. His work connected the photography of “Neues Sehen” [New Seeing] with the experiments of the group “fotoform” and of “subjective photography” in Germany of the post-war era.
