Julien Goldstein (born in 1979) is based in France.
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. This work was published in a book in January 2012 and exhibited in Visa pour l’image in September 2012. He was also a finalist this year for the Visa d’Or Magazine.
His photographs are regularly published in the French and international press, including: Geo France, Le Monde, Le Monde Magazine, Courrier International, L’Equipe Magazine, The New York Times, Newsweek, D della Repubblica, Spiegel…
He regularly works with the International Federation of Red Cross, and his corporate clients include Nespresso, Air France, EDF, Renault and Alsthom among others.
