100 Polaroids Book Release Party, 11.19.10

Johalla Projects is excited to host the release party for 100 Polaroids, Patrick Sansone’s new book of photographs.  This past summer, we exhibited Sansone’s polaroids in the Art of Touring; these images were the product of years of travel with his band, Wilco, that begun as a therapeutic activity to relieve the stress of touring. Though untrained as a photographer, his compositions reflect the vernacular style of Walker Evans and Amy Stein and present a conceptual landscape of America as seen through Sansone’s eye.

Please join us on Friday, November 19, 2010, 8-12pm to celebrate the release of 100 Polaroids and view the photographs from the text. Copies of 100 Polaroids will be for sale and Sansone will available to sign them.  First 150 signed and numbered. Foreword by Nels Cline. Polaroids are not for sale, but reprints may be purchased.
