We report a violation of the CHSH inequality for ghost-images. This is achieved by using two spatially separated phase modulators within the context of a two-photon parametric down-conversion experiment. We obtain edge enhanced images as a direct consequence of the quantum correlations in the orbital angular momentum (OAM) of the down-converted photon pairs. For phase objects, with differently orientated edges, we show a violation of the CHSH Bell-type inequality for an OAM subspace, thereby unambiguously revealing the quantum nature of our ghost-imaging arrangement.
