Montage is a pictorial technique in which a picture is formed by applying seperate images in parts or in layers to form a total image. These images can be whole or be fragments of photographs and illustrations. The illustrations are chosen for their subject and their message. Montage is different from papiers collés and collage in message and image. In photomontage only photographs, often incongruous, are juxtaposed.
