52 Weeks is the much anticipated coffee table book calendar, and ready- to- frame collection of stunning photographs that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. Each chapter of the book opens with an original full color image, a happening of sorts followed by a short story. The simplicity of life, the strange beauty of a place, the flavor of freshly baked bread, the mood of the sky, Dominique Lecomte knows them all.
His words have the humility and strength of a writer in full possession of his art; they create beauty out of the ordinary, softly, strongly, in the style of French poet Francis Ponge, who revolutionized the use of language in the 20th century. Week after week, story after story, image after image, Lecomte provides entry into a new reality. The book comes as a surprise, a truly timeless must- buy to share without restraint.
