M-am născut în 1964 la Tîrgu-Mureş. Aveam cinci ani, cînd am văzut prima fotografie color şi în aceeaşi perioadă am urmărit aselenizarea primilor oameni. Cele două evenimente aveau să mă marcheze şi să mă fascineze pentru o viaţă întreagă. La vîrsta de doisprezece ani am început să învăţ fotografie şi de atunci nu contenesc să învăţ cîte ceva. Am păţit la fel şi cu astronomia, tot timpul doresc să învăţ despre cerul înstelat. Mi-a venit foarte uşor să îmbin cele două pasiuni, puteam să le practic simultan în astrofotografie. Acest hobbi însemnă pentru mine un fel de a fi şi un fel de a gîndi, prin obiectivul aparatului văd altfel lumea din jur. Fotografiile mele încearcă să îmbine peisajul creat de mîna omului cu minunile bolţii cereşti, evidenţiind astfel că suntem locuitorii cosmosului. În acelaşi timp, prin tehnica fotografică înfăţişez cerul nocturn cum nu-l mai putem vedea din cauza poluării atmosferice şi poluării luminoase. Aş dori să atrag atenţia asupra splendorii universului ce se află deasupra capului nostru, poate că înzestrîndu-ne cu o conştiinţă de cetăţeni ai cosmosului, vom avea o atitudine mult mai responsabilă faţă de semenii noştri şi de lumea noastră.

Munzlinger Attila

1964-ben születtem Marosvásárhelyen. Ötéves voltam, amikor az első színes fényképet láttam, és ekkortájt szálltak le a Holdra az első emberek. Mind a két esemény egy életre meghatározta gondolkodásomat. Tizenkét évesen elkezdtem fotográfiát tanulni, azóta kisebb-nagyobb kihagyásokkal folyamatosan tanulom. Ugyanez a helyzet a csillagászattal is: állandóan igyekszem tanulni valamit az égboltról. A fotográfiát és a csillagászatot nem volt nehéz összekötni, egyszerre foglalkozhattam mindkét számomra kedves időtöltéssel.  Az asztrofotó ugyanakkor számomra nem csak időtöltés, hanem gondolkodási forma és világnézet is egyben, a lencsén keresztül másképp érzékelem a világot, mint szabad szemmel. Fotóimon igyekszem összekötni az ember alkotta tájat a csillagos égbolt csodáival, hangsúlyozva ezáltal kozmoszlakó mivoltunkat, másrészt a fényképeken úgy lehet ábrázolni a csillagos eget, ahogy manapság már nem látni azt, a sok légszennyezés és fényszennyezés miatt. Szeretném felhívni a figyelmet a fejünk felett pompázó univerzumra, hátha kozmikus polgári öntudattal felelősebben fogunk viszonyulni egymáshoz és világunkhoz.
