Turkish Artist Turns Istanbul Upside Down to Form Warped Cityscapes

Turkish photographer and digital artist Aydın Büyüktaş turns the streets of Istanbul upside down in warped cityscapes that seem to curve unbelievably upward and outward toward the skies. While it’s fascinating to draw parallels with stunning visuals from the 2010 movie Inception, the artist says his real inspiration is taken from the 1884 satirical novella Flatland that represents a two-dimensional world filled by geometric figures. In this series, also titled Flatland, Büyüktaş photographed canals, bazaars, skate parks, and bridges with the aid of a drone and then digitally stitched them together as dramatically altered spaces without a visible horizon.
