A retrospective of Sukan's creative work in production, design and photography in the comedy industry.

Some 200 of Idil's portraits and photographs of live performance will be exhibited including much-loved comedians Eddie Izzard, Clive Anderson and Paul Merton (whose newly-released autobiography Only When I Laugh has as its front cover Idil's most recent portrait of him); as well as performers who appear in comedy sitcoms and films, such as Patrick Stewart and Michael Gambon; and recent breakthrough artists such as Bridget Christie, Daniel Rigby, Sara Pascoe and James Acaster.

The exhibition will also include never-before-seen-images from around the comedy world and Idil's famous photographs of The Muppets.

Idil's iconic portrait of Celia Imrie, which will be shown in the exhibition, was captured during her work as official photographer at the British Independent Film Awards; this work has now been acquired by the National Portrait Gallery.
