Expanded version in digital format
from book: FORWARD
In thirty years of publishing, I’ve found that remarkably few photographers have a vision that transcends any debate about what is porn and what is art and what’s the difference and all of that. Diane Arbus, Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe and Bob Carlos Clarke paved the way, taking sexual imagery out of the realm of pornography and into the world’s art galleries and collections. Will Santillo is their inheritor, moving forward with images that uniquely bring reality to combine with elegance.
Viewing these images, you feel that you have opened a private door and come across something private and special. It’s like a still from a movie, frozen in time. What just happened? And what’s about to happen next? This is entirely new in work at this level. Santillo has not just set a fictional scene; he has recorded something intimate for us to share.

Taschen releases - Lesbians for MenStraight men have always had a thing for lesbians, or rather, for essentially straight women willing to do other women for their male viewing pleasure. The first photo book to document faux lesbian couplings, Dian Hanson’s Lesbians for Men explores the reasons and origins of this quintessential fantasy with over 300 photos ( including a few by SANTILLO ) of the obliging women who’ve kissed, fondled, and fulfilled men’s lesbian cravings from 1890 through to today.
Hardcover, 22.5 x 30 cm, 288 pages
After selling over 20,000 hardcover copies of La Petite Mort world wide, Taschen is pleased to announce a pressing of a second edition, now in softcover.
La Petite Mort—‘the little death’—is a euphemism for orgasm, but the women who masturbate for Toronto photographer Will Santillo ripple with the pleasures of life. This book presents the finest of Santillo’s intimate portfolio, in which each model decided and directed how she would self-stimulate to climax. In accompanying interviews, Dian Hanson speaks with 37 of Santillo’s models about overcoming inhibition and achieving orgasm in front of a stranger with a camera.
