"Constantly looking for something new and unusual with the typical curiosity of a child who still marvels, despite their age, for the beauty of the world around them.”
Mimmi Moretti, whose birth name is Domenico, was born in Catania in 1966. A few months later the family moved to Paris. It was in the French capital that he was culturally informed and where he began, thanks to his uncle, to take pictures and familiarize himself with the darkroom.
At the age of 20, Moretti started working as a freelance photographer, collaborating with a few magazines. He left college before graduating to work for a German multinational company. A few years later he went on to pursue his own entrepreneurial endeavors during the dot-com business boom. Towards the late 90s, Moretti returned to photography and began experimenting with the new digital photographic technology that was dawning and definitively made the transition to digital photography in 2002. In 2014, he first displayed his photographs in a collective exhibit in London. Moretti loves to range from varying subjects and themes, even if, at the moment, he prefers industrial architecture and societal subject matter. He is always attracted to technical experimentation and he is always, continuously developing different and original styles. His studies in Humanities have often influenced his main projects.
