Aydin Büyüktaş Challenges Perception With Distorted Views of American Landscapes

For his series Flatland II, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş has created dizzying and distorted views of American landscapes. It took the photographer two months to scout and plan for the locations, then another month and 10,000 miles of travelling across the USA to capture the shots. Aydin captured 18-20 images for each shot, then stitched them together to create collages that stretch into the sky and fold onto themselves.

Much of Aydin’s work is inspired by Edwin Abbot’s satirical novel Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. I think the dizzying landscapes are also somewhat similar to the dreamworld of Inception, or the settlement at the end of Interstellar – and what a world that would be.
