Photographer William Mortensen. In the early 20th Century, he manipulated photographs to create scenes of beauty, grotesquery, diablerie, monsters, and mutants. His work was ignored for decades, as photographers viewed his manipulation of photographs with disdain, and the preference was for realism and naturalism.  

Le Vey dedicated the Satanic Bible to him, and Mortensen even worked as a Hollywood photographer for a while. He moved to Los Angeles as an escort for the sister of a friend of his, Fay Wray.
