MYOP
Photo Agency

MYOP was established in 2005 by photographers willing to unite and write together a lively, sensitive and subjective history of our time.

Today MYOP brings together twenty-two documentary photographers who confront their points of view and share their testimony of the contemporary world.

Our commitment takes shape through collaborations with the international press and the most prestigious institutions. We regularly organize group exhibitions and publish our own editions, in total independence.

Our name is inspired by a poem by Paul Éluard: “Mes Yeux, Objets Patients, étaient à jamais ouverts sur l’étendue des mers où je me noyais. Enfin une écume blanche passa sur le point noir qui fuyait. Tout s’effaça.”

The Photographers:

Ed Alcock | Guillaume Binet | Julien Daniel | Agnès Dherbeys | Marie Dorigny | Laurence Geai | Pierre Hybre | Olivier Jobard | Alain Keler | France Keyser | Oan Kim | Olivier Laban-Mattei | Stéphane Lagoutte | Jean Larive | Ulrich Lebeuf | Zen Lefort | Pascal Maitre | Olivier Monge | Julien Pebrel | Chloé Sharrock | Adrienne Surprenant | Michel Slomka

    Publication
    Void
    International
    In 2011, Maria Sturm began to photograph the lives of young people from the Lumbee Tribe around Pembroke, Robeson County, North Carolina.

Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk.
