If you have access to the internet the chances are that you might have seen the work of James Fridman, a British graphic designer and photoshop wind-up artist.

Fridman takes public requests to alter images in some way or another and produces hilarious interpretations of the instructions.

Of course most people submitting their photos to Fridman now know that he will take the piss out of anyone foolish enough to send him an image, but that doesn’t detract from the hilarity.

In March of this year Fridman teamed up with online dating app Bumble to support the criminalization of unsolicited lewd photos. The campaign is lead by the Bumble Founder & CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd.

Fridman is known for taking down vanity and narcissism with his edits but he is also a campaigner against bullying through his charitable foundation which seeks to address social issues affecting children and young people.

Not content with simply editing photos, Fridman often produces short videos featuring images he is sent.

Most of the photoshop requests Fridman receives are rooted in some form of vanity or at the very least people playing at being vapid, but the artist can be as cutting in his take-downs as he is supportive of body positivity.

People often ask to have a former lover or partner removed from shots.

Strangely some folk appear to bring genuine requests to the infamous piss-taker and he rolls out some truly marvelous photoshop creations in response.

Internet trolling is a largely mean spirited activity but Fridman brings joy to people’s lives and teaches us the odd lesson along the way.

Users who want to submit requests to Fridman can do so through his website JamesFridman.com or by contacting him on the three major social media platforms.
