A Photographer Has Bent American Landscapes Into Right Angles

Surreal photos that will make your head spin.

Turkish photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has created a surreal series of American landscapes that play with perspectives, making the land appear to rear up at a 90 degree right angle.

“Most of the time the places where we live do not draw our attention or transform our memories,” Büyüktaş tells Akita, saying he aims to surprise his viewers by presenting a multi-dimensional point of view in his photos.

The photo series, called ‘Flatland II’, follows the success of his first ‘Flatland’ series in 2015, which was widely reported on.

The surreal images are reminiscent of the film Inception, in which Leonardo Di Caprio experiences a dreamworld where the streets of Paris curl up and loom above him.

“When I became interested in visual effects and animation in 2003, [I was drawn to] the idea that I could recreate surreal places that I saw in my dreams and I was reminded of my childhood, a time when I read science fiction by writers like Isaac Asimov and H.G. Wells.

“These books made me question issues such as wormholes, black holes, parallel universes, gravitation, and the bending of space and time.”

To create his series, Büyüktaş photographed landscapes in the US, including Arizona, Texas, California and New Mexico. His shoot took a month to complete and he then spent two months creating collages from around 20 photos, creating the surreal angles. Take a look at more pictures from the series ‘Flatland II’.
