A montage is a compilation of related images, coming together to form a complete piece, or a component of a larger piece.

A montage is a carefully curated collection of images that share a thematic connection, serving as the building blocks for either an independent work of art or a specific section within a larger artistic composition. It’s more formal than a collage.

In terms of artistic expression, montages typically adhere to a specific theme or subject matter, offering a cohesive narrative or visual exploration. This deliberate thematic cohesion not only imparts a sense of purpose to the montage but also enhances its ability to convey a meaningful message or evoke specific emotions within the viewer.
