Organisers of the Iris Prize LGBTQ+ Film Festival have announced the photographer of the 2024 Pink Portraits project.

South Wales-based photographer Sarah Scorey was confirmed on Thursday (14 March). The project, run in collaboration with Ffotogallery and Transport for Wales, will showcase 10 photographs of LGBTQ+ professionals working for Transport for Wales. The portraits will be displayed across Wales during Pride Month (June) in public spaces.

Sarah Scorey has said: “I’m extremely thankful and grateful to have been picked for this amazing opportunity to photograph some of Transport For Wales’ LGBTQ+ staff members as part of Pink Portraits 2024. Photography has been a source of empowerment for me, so I’m really looking forward to using photography as a tool of empowerment and seeing what we create!”

Sarah holds a first-class BA Hons in Photography, specialising in fashion and editorial photography, from the University of West of England. There will also be an accompanying ‘the making of’ video shot alongside the capturing of the portraits. The finished film will be shown at Pride Cymru, in Cardiff.
