What does accopanying mean here?
Joan Didion’s accompanying essay = Joan Didion’s essay which comes with the photographs?

Best of 2019: Chose Commune

A refreshing book that makes you feel like picking up your camera and going out for the sheer pleasure of taking pictures. Even the mundane things that Jamie Hawkesworth sees during his travels are heightened by his unique and personal feel for colours and composition. The dialogue between Hawkesworth’s photographs and Joan Didion’s accompanying essay also make for a successful photo-text publication.

    The essay goes with the photos in the photo-text publication.
    I see. Does the word sound formal?
    I don't think of any synonym which is more common than this one. If there is , I'd better use that one in every day, non-formal situations.
