I've been working on creating texts and images that work with each other, that play off of one another, that co-exist without one superseding the other. Is that possible, or will text always subjugate the image? Fellow travelers right now: Max Ernst, Edward Gorey, Kate Greenaway, Henry Darger...

i like your captions. i think sometimes they can be totaly independent of the image and can offer two totally different viewpoints.
