Dotti (Italy) becomes familiar with photography at the age of seven, when he starts to make prints in the darkroom instructed by his father, a famous photo-reporter. He accompanies his father to the television and cinema studios and is surrounded by personalities of the art scene, acquaintances of his parents, throughout his childhood. Federico Fellini is one of them.  Seven years in the United States, from 1990-1997, are a vital period of creative growth, in which he aims to apply to photography all the experiences and influences acquired in his television and cinema years. Around 2003 he turns to digital and video art, dedicating himself to 'an Interactive Living Picture'.  His childhood experiences and encounters, combined with his later work as a cinematographer and acclaimed portrait photographer, have a decisive influence on the development of Dotti's cinematic style. Gifted with a strong sense of form, he lifts forms out of their worn context and gives them a new life. In a self-made language that combines images with sound and movement, reducing forms to their naked essence, Dotti's digital art seems to reach out in loneliness to the comforts of beauty and simplicity.

'The important thing now after all the great art and great masters is not the ability to use a technique, but the vision to communicate the emotion that the soul is experiencing, the breath of the beauty and the infinite must be present.' (Dotti.A)
