I'm carlodelli and the art of to represent the Universe, the Life and Human Life, through pictures and personal creations, is the most important part of my life. In 2006 I changed my way of thinking Photography; since then, I have dedicated myself to the artistic aspect of Photography, whatever you may think it to be, calling this global project “Fotocreatures”.

92nd act, 1st Part, A Series in the Register of 1963, at the Municipal Building of San Gimignano, Province of Siena, Italy: “..on the 5th of October at n. 18, Via XX Settembre, a boy was born, who was called Carlo Niccolo Bartolo Maria…”. I think that living San Gimignano was important for my passion for Art. I played football in the Cloisters of Palazzo Pecori, in front of Ghirlandaio’s “Announciation” and I spent hours observing the Frescos of Benozzo Gozzoli in Sant’Agostino or Barna da Siena in the Collegiata.
I have lived in many localities in Tuscany and at present I work at my Studio in San Giuliano Terme, only few kilometres from Pisa, Lucca and the sea.
Already, during my school years, I was interested in Graphics and Painting and already attending the Giovanni Fattori group of Calci, and drawing above all in China ink.
I was also very attracted by Literature, fascinated by the works of Giacomo Leopardi and Luigi Russo. Although I was taking photographs right from the “eighties”, I began to do so in a professional way from 1993, attending numerous workshops with photographers and photographic critics (Walter Rosenblum, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Maurizio Galimberti, Franco Fontana, Denis Curti, Grazia Neri, etc).
I have done photographic reportages all over the world - mainly in Africa, Australia, Argentina, Venezuela, madagascar, Sri-Lanka, the United States and Tibet - but I love to photograph, more than any other, my beloved Tuscany.

Curators and writers about my Works and ehibitions are: Denis Curti, Gigliola Foschi, Lorella Giudici, Massimo Mussini, Orietta Bay, Vincenzo Marzocchini, Luigi Erba, Giorgio Rigon, Lia Bronzi, Monica Venturini and others. I'm one of the artist of some Art Galleries, and the historic first was the "Art Gallery 10.2! international research contemporary art" in Milan directed by Maria Rosa Pividori ph. +39-366-8624821
