Dylan Thomas - The Photographer for Pink Portraits Revisited - LGBT+ History Month

The Photographer

The next generation of LGBT+ professionals working behind the camera in film and television are celebrated with 10 new Pink Portraits Revisited taken by Welsh photographer Dylan Lewis Thomas.  

“Dylan’s portraiture has a gentle touch, revealing glimpses of his sitters’ inner personalities and a strong bond of trust with the photographer. We are excited to see how Dylan will develop his own unique style with this project.”
– Siân Addicott, Director at Ffotogallery
