Folding, ‘Inception’-Like Landscape Photos That Will Mess With Your Mind

For more than a year now, Turkish photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has been working on his surreal photo series ‘Flatland’. The idea was originally inspired by Edwin Abbott’s Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions.
What started off as warped images featuring famous landmarks in Istanbul has since expanded to include various locales across the US such as Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico.
For this new collection ‘Flatland II’, Büyüktaş first located suitable compositions via Google Earth–a search that took him roughly two months. After pinpointing all his potential photo subjects, the photographer took to the road, travelling approximately 10,000 miles to create the images below.
Armed with a drone, Büyüktaş captures between 18 and 20 shots, before stitching them together to create the Inception-like images.
