Edinburgh Fringe 2011 – Photography

Shakespeare at the Fringe

The Edinburgh Fringe is world’s largest Arts Festival, held annually in Edinburgh during August. In 2011 there were around 2,500 performances over 25 days.

It is a Festival predominantly for the performing arts, where theatre and comedy are the main ingredients.

Among the wide variety of shows, this year, there were productions based on Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and “Hamlet” and pantomime based shows like Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and Red Riding Hood. There were also a wide range of more “modern” productions.

While these shows are performed at various venues in Edinburgh, the public get the opportunity to see a preview of some of the productions, in various locations, centred in the Royal Mile, on the streets of the Scottish capital.

This is an excellent opportunity to get a “taste” of the shows on offer and gives me, the opportunity to make images of some of the performers amusing, comical, horrific and unusual expressions

Here is a small selection of my images from the Fringe 2011. (Click the image above to see the all of the images)

    • Hi Ian,
