Julien Goldstein

Julien Goldstein is based between Montpellier and Paris, France.

Julien Goldstein was born in 1979. After starting as an assistant at Magnum, working with chief editor, Ayperi Ecer, amongst others, he decided to pursue a career as a photojournalist. Drawing on his Romanian origins he explored its history and it's transition from a socialist republic to a democratic state. He then went on to explore former Soviet Republics such as Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, and the self-proclaimed Republic of Transnistria, a report later exhibited in Visa pour l’image in 2003.

Being particularly interested in Turkey and in the geopolitical issues related to the Kurdish people, he completed a five-year project entitled 'Kurdistan, The Anger Of A People Without Rights', for which he was awarded a Lagardere Foundation grant in December 2009. A book of this work was released in January 2012.

His photographs are regularly published in the French and international press, including: Geo France, National Geographic France, Le Monde, Le Monde Magazine, Courrier International, The New York Times, Newsweek, The Herald Tribune, D della Repubblica, Spiegel.

He regularly works with the International Federation of Red Cross, and his corporate clients include Air France, Renault, and Alsthom among others.
