For your consideration, Cabinet Books’ Notes on Glaze: 18 Photographic Investigations by poet and critic Wayne Koestenbaum.

Notes on Glaze collects Koestebaum’s “Legends” columns for Cabinet. From 2010-2015, he wrote captions for photographs selected by the magazine’s editors, provided he was not acquainted with the image beforehand.

What results resembles a sophisticated Pictionary, in which the caption describe less the actual photographs than Koestenbaum’s projections unto them.
