Sure, get a photo that you would want to create a typographical piece off and play around with a few filters in Photoshop (Stamp is a good one) until it you find the nice contrast/dark gaps to fill in. It would end up looking something like this [link]

Place it in the background and set the opacity/viability to something low like 20% - that way you can easily see what gaps to fill in with text. Think imaginative when filling in :)

Hey! Love your work! I actually wanted to ask if you can explain to me how you did this? Im new to graphic Design and I go to the art institute of Philadelphia and Im in this class typograpghy and they are asking us to take a quote and kind of make a picture out of type expressing with the type...being that i am new to this, i am so lost and I have no idea how to do it and its due this Weds!! Is there anyway you could help me? I wanted to use this quote:“Faces of type are like men’s faces. They have their own expression; their complexion and peculiar twists and turns of line identify them immediately to friends, to whom each is full of identity.”
— J.L. Frazier Let me know!! Thank you!

Um.. i don't really know any good type quotes but I do know that type/text works best when it is a part of the design/artwork, not when it is simply slapped over the top.

As for how I did this, it's quite simple actually =P get any photo you want, upload it to Photoshop and play with brightness and contrast or even the available filters till you get nice shades of areas that you want your text to fill. See the grey area surrounding under the letters in my work? that was my pick. Chuck it in Illustrator (you won't loose any quality when moving around text there) and fill those areas with letters.. be creative!

good luck, link me to what you'll come up with :)
