ESO Photo Ambassador Alexandru Tudorică

Born in 1987 in Romania, Alexandru Tudorică has always been fascinated by science and technology. After completing a BSc in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Bucharest, Alexandru continued to follow his passion with an MSc and PhD in astrophysics and cosmology at the University of Bonn, Germany.

At the age of 15, he borrowed an old film camera and so began his quest to capture the beauties of the night sky. He has been fortunate enough to visit many of the top astronomical observatories, where he can frequently run outside from the control room, and take as many pictures and experiment with timelapse for as long as his limited time allows. His images have been published and featured in magazines, books and exhibitions all over the world. His interest ranges from technical photography to landscape astrophotography, with a strong passion for timelapse, limited at the moment only by technical constraints.

Through astrophotography, Alex hopes to bring art and science together for the general public and inspire people to spend more time thinking about and enjoying our tremendously beautiful Universe. Alex is also an enthusiastic mountaineer, often carrying heavy photographic equipment to the highest peaks, when he's not stargazing with a small telescope or enjoying the experience of a pristine sky with the naked eye.
