Link to John Stezaker

I have found that a lot of my photo montages have a similar way of working to that of john stezakers collages.

I think the reason our images work so well is because of the few strong lines that cross over and connect the separate images together, there are a lot of lines that don't match up perfectly, but your eyes choose to see the ones that do and forget about the ones that don't. This is true at first glance, but after a while of staring at it you begin to see that there are lines that don't match up and you drift between seeing them as one single connected image and two separate totally unrelated photos. The most effective photo montages I have made stay true to this idea and are better understood after studying them for a while.
