Philippe Guionie has been a member of Agence M.Y.O.P. since 2009. Guionie trained as a historian and geographer before choosing photography as a means of witnessing and posing questions. Specialised in "Africanism", he has traveled the continent for over twenty years.

He is a documentary photographer working around the themes of memory and constructed identities. His photographic premise: to put faces on human memories that do not have one, often combining photographs and sound recordings. An "engaged" photographer, Philippe Guionie is writing a human history through photography, inscribed in time: that  of shared memory and of the present.

Author of several books - Anciens combattants africains, Un petit coin de paradis (Les Imaginayres / Diaphane, 2006), Africa-America (Diaphane, 2006) & Swimming in the black sea (Filigranes éditions, 2014) – his personal projects are presented in galleries and festivals in France and internationally (Les Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles, ImageSingulières Festival in Sète, Galerie du Château d'Eau in Toulouse, Polka Gallery in Paris, Tbilisi Photo Festival in Georgia, French cultural Institutes in Africa and network of the French Alliances in South America etc).

Philippe Guionie is the laureate of several photographic awards including the 2008 Roger Pic Prize for the series “le tirailleur et les trois fleuves” (the infantryman and the three rivers). He regularly collaborates with the French press (Libération, Le Monde, Polka Magazine) and the international press (The New York Times). Lecturer in image semiology at the training school of photography and multimedia (ETPA) in Toulouse, he also supervises numerous workshops in France (Rencontres d'Arles) and abroad. Philippe Guionie is represented by the Polka gallery in Paris. In 2015, he curated the exhibition "Koudjina in inheritances" at the Rencontres of African Photography in Bamako. He is also artistic director of the residence 1 + 2 in Toulouse linked to two other European cities (1plus2.fr).
