Re: Great sites - P.S. on History of Photomontage

Hello Art Folks,

There is one nude photomontage from the Victorian era.... I did send the
author email requesting he try to select a different image from that time
period...but of course he declined my recommendation (although he was not
offended). I explained to him that many schools do not permit teachers to
show nudes....but...... I know you will use your best judgment in how you
will use this site. I liked it overall and will list it on my Photography
links page (sometime soon).

> History Of Photomontage
> It traces the beginnings of this fascinating area of art history from
> Victorian experiments, through the phenomenal creativity of the artists of
> Berlin Dada who made it into an art form, to the political propaganda of
> 1980s antinuclear activists.
