Who is Pat Sansone?
Musician, Photographer Pat Sansone is a multi-instrumentalist in the rock bands The Autumn Defense and Wilco.
Sansone's tremendously tuned ear has led him to become a studio musician and producer. His own project The Autumn Defense was formed in New Orleans in 1999 with friend John Stirratt of Wilco, and the band is responsible for three full length albums. Pat and John’s new album “Once Around” will be available November 2, 2010.

While on tour, Pat roamed around downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, Polaroid in hand, snapping photographs of old parking lots and buildings. As he notes that Polaroid discontinued their line of film, he muses on the passing of an era. “It’s been interesting going around the country and going into small towns, because a lot of what I like to shoot is little details of old downtowns, capturing these little pieces of a fading America with a fading technology.”
My Polaroid One Step Close-Up camera that I'm giving away with Pat's book.
To make the giveaway extra special, I’m donating a Polaroid 600 One Step Close-Up from my personal collection of Polaroid cameras.
