Julie Grahame is the online publisher of aCurator.com, a full-screen photography magazine, and the aCurator blog, named in Life's Top 20 Photo Blog Awards: "Grahame is a curator with a flawless eye and, in her assessment of the work she presents, an immediately trustworthy, no-frills tone. aCurator's triumph is a clarity of purpose wedded to a keen intelligence, and a willingness to let its stunning photographs largely speak for themselves."

For 16 years Julie managed a large international syndication agency, then for several seasons was production manager at fashion magazine ZOOZOOM.com. She is a member of American Society of Picture Professionals and American Photography Archive Group; a portfolio reviewer for American Society of Media Photographers, American Photographic Artists, FotoFusion, Photo Plus Expo; a judge for PDN and the New Orleans Photo Alliance; a contributing writer for PDN's Emerging Photographer magazine, and consults with photographers on various projects. Julie was a guest at Nordic Light Photo Festival in 2012 alongside Mary Ellen Mark and Bruce Davidson.


“The aCurator blog is a prime example of how bloggers can serve as curators, as taste makers.”
Joerg Colberg writing in the British Journal of Photography

“I have worked with Julie for a number of years and consider myself very fortunate to have her as a colleague. Everything she takes on‚ small or large, simple or complex‚ is done with an efficient mix of good judgment, humor, and competence. I am happy to recommend her without any qualifications.”
Jerry Fielder, Curator and Director, Estate of Yousuf Karsh

“Julie is the coolest! Her energy always motivated me to do better.”
Aleksandra Flora, Account Executive, Retna Ltd.
