Photomontage – assembling photographic images that relate to each other in some way to create a single work

We know what montage is.

So to remember photomontage, you just have to split the word to realise that it is photos that are used to make the montage.


Two or more images combined to create a new one is a photomontage. The resulting images can be realistic, although sometimes farfetched or imaginative, or completely abstract, more of a random application of images.

Originally, photomontages were made by layering already printed photographs or cutting up photo negatives and rearranging them before printing, but in more recent works, photoshop and other programs allow them to be made digitally.

Cut out and slip the additional layers between them to create your final image. Once you are happy compositionally, you can glue them down.
