Photomontage

The intended composition of pictures or other reproductions to create a new image. Sometimes, texts are used as well and the photomontage is complemented with various graphical techniques (for example drawings and paintings). There are two methods: Positive photomontage (the fixing of photographs on a surface, a technique similar to the collage) and negative photomontage (different negatives are mounted or copied on top of each other and an enlarged photograph is taken).
