Some narcissists are bad. Not all of them, though! Some narcissists are amazing. Take Ahmed Angel.
Recently in the West, Angel's images have started to appear on forums and on websites. This weekend, Japan discovered him. There are those who are being mean to Angel — which isn't cool! How can you be mean to anyone with incredible photos like this?
Love it! Angel's Facebook page has several hundred photos of his own face — and that's it. Some of the images are proper portraits, while others use online photo editors like PhotoFunia, PhotoFaceFun, and PicJoke, which takes you to PicJoke.net, an online photo editor with "fun photo effects, photo frames, nice collages and realistic photomontages." There are also images done by Digital Almasra Photo Service, whatever that is.
Ahemd seems to have a following online — which, no doubt, will get larger. Good for him!
It's not entirely clear if this is "for real" or even if Ahmed is (maybe he's a digital person); however, many of the images have been online for well over a year, and Angel continues to upload new ones. The photos are narcissistic, sure, but also interesting and unlike anything I've seen. Ever.
Kotaku has reached out to Ahmed about his pics and will update this post should he comment.
