This book is an unexpected deep dive into the tenderness and truth of weddings. For 342 Saturdays, John Dolan has quietly pursued emotional and revealing art inside the wedding day itself. He has aimed his camera at tiny moments of deep meaning; evocative, joyful, unscripted, perfectly imperfect scenes at the start of a marriage. The wedding is one of society’s last and lasting ceremonies – universal in its presence, comprehensive in its emotion. Dolan’s candor, his respectful discretion, and his gentle but shrewd and powerful observation combine to make a book that transcends weddings and enlightens us on the human condition.
