With Göksin Sipahioglu, disappears a great actor of photojournalism, famous for his many scoops around the world, and for his brilliant action at the head of the agency Sipa Press, which he founded in Paris in 1973 and which he animated for thirty years.

Coming from Turkey in 1966 with all kinds of acts of bravery – in Sinai and Israel in 1956, in 1962 in Cuba during the missile crisis, the first Turkish journalist to enter China – he brought his passionate press boss to Paris, working as a director, editor-in-chief, image-taker, and talent detector. Under his guidance, Sipa has become for many talents a formidable school of the trade, and one of the three major French photojournalism agencies. The many journalists he trained lost an irreplaceable father.
