Words alone are powerful (see dictionaries, novels and poetry). Images alone are powerful, see drawings, photographs, stills, moving images. However, combining words and images is phenomenal, see magazines, newspapers, websites, encyclopedias, Tmovies. You can describe the world and how it works with words and pictures.
The website highlights how we communicate through descriptions (words) and pictures (images or visuals) in communication and in story-telling:
Definitions from the Merriam Webster

Creativity underpins communication And the good news is everyone can be creative. Exploring and expanding the creative aspects of yourself makes you happy. The creative process is big portion play and another portion problem-solving. Engaging in a creative play is exercise for your mind. The process from research and preparation to mixing and arrange descriptions and pictures leads to insight and illumination. In neuroscience, discoveries show that creativity engages the left side and the right side of the brain in a variety of cognitive processes, and uses several brain regions at different times in the process.
