Walk along the streets of old town Edinburgh during the Fringe festival and you’ll be bombarded with the faces of comedians, on posters, flyers and billboards (and sometimes in person.) Every comic’s artwork is trying to catch your eye, but if you find yourself thinking ‘that’s a particularly stylish poster’, chances are their picture was taken by Idil Sukan.
Sukan’s been shooting the great and the good of comedy – from Steve Coogan to Eddie Izzard, The Muppets to, er, David Hasselhoff – for a decade. Now she’s holding her first exhibition, ‘This Comedian’ – which runs at the Embassy Tea Gallery from February 20 till March 8 – and she allowed Time Out these exclusive shots.
