Mario Unger, is a photographer and photoshop artists from the Austrian Burgenland. Together with his wife Martina, he lives in the small village of Rotenturm der Pinka. His two children, Laura and Sebastian, are now grown up and only more rarely at home. Art runs like a red thread through his life. As a 7-year-old, he attended the local music school, which meant to be included in the University to study the trumpet as a 12-year-old. The teaching of this instrument should be his calling for 33 years. After this time he left his "vocation" behind him and made his real passion, photography to his new calling, what he doesn't regret any second.
