In 1995 he began to take photographs with a personal style characterized by a unique color sensibility. Metropolis, a series of color pictures of the most important cities in the world, brought him international recognition. In 2001, he moved to New York, where he recorded the changes that took place after the tragedy of September 11. During the same period, he became involved in a project regarding artists and their creative and exhibition spaces, carrying out a series of works in both Europe and the United States. Le Stanze Dell’Arte, the result of this work, won the 2002 Canon Prize for the best photographic project. In 2003, Dainelli participated in the Eurogeneration project, conducted by fourteen Contrasto photographers documenting the lifestyles of youths in the twenty-five countries of the European Union. The project was followed up by an exhibition at Palazzo Reale in Milan and a book published by Contrasto. In 2004, he moved to Tokyo. In 2006, he took part in the group project Beijing In and Out, and in 2007, he and three other Contrasto photographers produced the images for a book called Solo in Italia, with texts written by Antonio Pascale. He combines his publishing activity with advertising and corporate photography. In recent years, he has worked on long-term photographic projects in Japan and China.
