Will Santillo graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Art and Design from the MIT School of Architecture in 1975. While at M.I.T., he was instructed by the renowned photographer Minor White, one of the founders of the famed Aperture. In 1976 Santillo moved to Toronto, Canada to continue his architectural studies at the University of Toronto, obtaining a professional degree in 1979. He is an American citizen holding dual citizenship with Canada, and frequently travels to New York, Los Angeles and other major North American cities for both commissioned and creative work.

He lives with his second wife and son in Toronto, where he continues to explore and innovate within the art of photography.
