Julien Ballester, aka Ballou34, is a toy photographer doing mostly Lego pictures.

Now based in Paris, Julien is originally from the South of France. That’s where the “34” of his nickname comes from (the postal code for his native region).

Engineer in aeronautics by day and toy photographer by night (actually it’s all the time), Julien has the opportunity to travel the world for work. He never leaves home without his camera and (at least) a box of Lego minifigures in his backpack.

His pictures are a way to tell his adventures around the globe.

He joined the Stuck In Plastic team in 2017.

You can follow Julien/Ballou34 on all social media: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, G+ and his website.
