Agence MYOP represents a group of 19 authors who bring together their differing visions of contemporary photography and who question today's world through the stories they tell.
The photographers of agence MYOP have gathered around the idea of assumed subjectivity in their photography. After 15 years since the agency's creation by Guillaume Binet and Lionel Charrier, the notion of resistance has become a particular focus:
Resistance to the forces of commercial photography;
Resistance through defending documentary photography;
Resistance via an engaged photographic view of the world.
The initials M.Y.O.P. are inspired from a poem by the surrealist poet Paul Eluard:
«Mes yeux objets patients
étaient à jamais ouverts
sur l'étendue des mers
où je me noyais »
