I love photography combined with texts. To me it's how everything comes together. Often when just using words or just images the message doesn't see to come across. However, when combining, integrating an idea, the emotion is visually integrated and someone feels, sees, reads that what the person had in mind. I know, graphic design that is called ;-)
A great example I read about (via Mishy Lane) is the This is Home project, where a lot of submissions do exactly this: integrate image and text. But more over, the project is a visual exploration of the concept of home (my favorite subject!), with submissions from all over the world.
