These Folding Landscape Photos Will Mess With Your Brain

Photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has published a new series of photos as part of his delightful Flatland series, which shows landscapes folding upon themselves like something out of the movie Inception.

Büyüktaş says he was originally inspired to create the series after reading the book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin Abbat.

His latest photos were captured in various places across the United States, including sites in Arizona, Texas, California and New Mexico.

Büyüktaş searches for locations using Google Earth, and planning his shots took about 2 months.

After coming up with a list of places to visit, Büyüktaş spent a month on a road, traveling about 10,000 miles to create the images.

At each of the locations, Büyüktaş used a drone and captured about 18 to 20 photos, which he then stitched together to create each bended landscape.

You can find previous photos in the series in our post from 2016. You can also follow along with Büyüktaş’s work on Facebook and Instagram.
