Though image-text works vary greatly and many examples of the hybrid form could be used, this presentation will discuss the problem of image-text and double literacy specifically as it manifests in the American road story, exploring this collaborative genre and photography's role within it. To this end, a range of works will be discussed: documentary photographs, photoconceptual artist's books of the 1960s and 1970s, postmodern fictions, and narrative paintings in contemporary art. Artists include: Robert Frank, Walker Evans, Peter Brown, Ed Ruscha, Stephen Shore, John Baldessari, Hunter S. Thompson, Richard Brautigan, Oskar Schell, Vernon Fisher, you, and me.
