  • 2.5 CAP Module in Photomontage


    In this module we look at photomontage as a form of collage including photographs or photographic reproductions. It is a process of generating an original image out of other images and fragments which can be cut, layered, glued and arranged. Part 1 looks at the use of photomontage as technique in art. The origin of photomontage in 19th c. photography is traced. In Part 2 contemporary examples of photomontage are analysed.
