Alain Keler has been a Member of Agence M.Y.O.P. since 2008. He previously worked for the Sygma and Gamma agencies, and  was a co-founder of Odyssey Pictures in 1989. 

He has reported on conflicts since the 1980s, in Lebanon, Chechnya, Israel, Palestine, the revolution in Iran, the civil war in El Salvador, etc. He has also worked on the discrimination against Roma gypsies in Europe. This latter work resulted in a comic strip created by Emmanuel Guibert and Frédéric Lemercier: Des Nouvelles d’Alain (2011).

He has directed two documentaries: The Last Journey (2014), which tells his mother’s story of convoy number 66 to Auschwitz; and Parias, les Roms en Europe (2011).

In 2015, he published 1982, journal d’un photographe, taken from his blog which is available at http://alain-keler.tumblr.com

He has been awarded the Paris Match Award for photojournalism (1986) for his story, “Ethiopia in the rain”, and the World Press Photo in the nature category. In 1997, he won the W. Eugene Smith Award for his work on minorities in the former Communist bloc. A book issued from this work, Eastern Winds, was published by Marval in 2000. In 2004 he was the laureate of Association 3P in Paris for his project Le pays de la terre qui brûle, about the complexity of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
