Surreal Warped Images of Istanbul by Aydın Büyüktaş

Flatland, a series by Aydın Büyüktaş of surreal photo manipulations of Istanbul, Turkey.

Aydın Büyüktaş has created this surreal collection of photo manipulations of Istanbul, Turkey. The series draws inspiration from Edwin Abbat’s book “Flatland: a Romance of Many Dimensions”.

We are usually surrounded by objects, buildings or places that don’t draw our attention. This series aims to give certain places another dimension. Aydın Büyüktaş has created some surreal effects as we know it from the movie “Inception”, where streets, buildings and full cityscapes are warped or rolled like a sheet of paper. The photo manipulations demonstrate Aydın Büyüktaş’ amazing skills. Using Adobe Photoshop, the Turkish artist has created some outstanding images. Below you can see a small selection of his Flatland series. For more, please have a look at Aydın Büyüktaş’ website or follow him on Facebook.
