Kaitlin Santoro Artist Photography Printmaking

Kaitlin Santoro is an interdisciplinary artist who works across photography, video, glass, and printmaking. Her work explores time, impermanence, loss, and generational trauma caused by cognitive impairment. She creates work that slowly breaks down and shifts, documenting the process and the aftermath to illustrate the fragility of memory over time. Santoro pushes the traditional boundaries of lens based, print, and glass mediums by using incompatible materials, intentionally breaking, or working in non-archival methods like printing with household items and fugitive materials.


Santoro’s work has been exhibited internationally, including shows at the International Center of Photography, UrbanGlass, and the Print Center of New York. Her work has been featured in Lenscratch and the Glass Art Society Journal, among other publications. She has been awarded various residencies including at the Manhattan Graphics Center, Pilchuck Glass School, and the Oxbow School of Art. Santoro has presented at the Glass Art Society annual conference, Maine Media Workshops + College, Pilchuck Glass School, the Tyler School of Art, and Queens College. She received her BFA in Photography from the University of Connecticut and her MFA in Photography from the Tyler School of Art and Architecture. In addition to her studio practice, she currently teaches at Tyler and for the City University of New York.
