Turkish Artist Warped Istanbul Inception Cityscapes

An extremely talented Turkish photographer Aydın Büyüktaş turns the streets of Istanbul upside down in these warped cityscapes that appear to curve infinitely upward and outward toward the skies. Moreover, throughout his entire career, Büyüktaş has experimented with visual effects, 3D, and video, but, passionate about a strong pull towards photography, has made that a primary focus.

Though it’s tempting to draw parallels with spectacular visuals from the 2010 movie Inception, the digital artist says his true creativeness is taken from the 1884 satirical novella Flatland that depicts a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures. In this beautiful photographs series, also titled “Flatland, Büyüktaş” captured canals, bazaars (markets), skate parks, and bridges with the aid of a drone and then digitally combined them together as dramatically inverted spaces without a visible horizon. Well, if you like the Aydin work, then you can see more of his gravity-defying work on Instagram. All photographs courtesy the artist.
