He worked as a photographer for Life magazine from 1937 to 1942. Henle was also a member of the New York Photo League and worked for the Farm Security Administration as a photographer.

Later in life he lived in Christiansted, Virgin Islands, but traveled extensively, including the U.S., Europe, Israel, India, Mexico, Japan and other locales. He died on January 31, 1993, in Christiansted, Virgin Islands.

Information on Henle and images of his work has appeared in Camera magazine, Contemporary Photographers, in Honnef & Sachsse's book German Photography 1870-1970: Power of a Medium, the International Center of Photography Encyclopedia of Photography, and in the Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists & Innovators. He is listed in the Auer & Auer and George Eastman House databases.
