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.

A wild animal approaching a human is quite surprising, and if the animal happens to be a rhino things aren’t quite likely to end on a happy note like this one. As Austin pointed out, he has filmed this rhino for a few years and has developed a level of trust.

On the bottom of the luggage is a little heart that beats (rather, blinks) faster when you take her out for your journey.
