Fragments of photographs, with or without specific image content, torn or cut and stuck down onto a flat surface to make a new picture. Handwork in pencil, pen, or brush can be added to the surface and the resulting image is often abstract. In photomontage a combination of photographs or images are turned into a new image, sometimes by re-photographing the mounted elements, multiple exposure techniques or using digital technology to create a new image on screen allowing infinite variations and edits.
