Otto Hagel (1909 - 1973) was a German-born American photographer married to Hansel Meith. Both were documentary photo-journalists along the lines of Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Peter Stackpole and Robert Capa.

He also shot numerous photo essays for LIFE and FORTUNE Magazines including one on the Heart Mountain Japanese American internment camp in 1943 and "The Simple Life" about his chicken farm in Santa Rosa, CA.
