@JagJaga - if the indentation of the root element is fixed, you can alter the search to something like :g/\v^\w \= \{/.,/\v^\};/;/join!. The \v sets very magic so you can use ^ in a search to indicate the start of a line (but now you have to escape the =, { and } characters)

Nice and quite a few clicks shorter than going through another app but it amazes (and frustrates) me that there's no easier solution.

@EBGreen - I see now how that can get misinterpreted but rest assured, it's all decent :) Feel free to edit the question to remove all doubt (English is not my native language).

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 - My pictures library contains 20.000+ photo's scattered (organized) in a multitude of folders (yyyy\yyyy-mm-dd). I know where the root is but I want to know where the photo I'm looking at is.

Close. It's \0 you would have used but Christian's answer is even shorter.
