Flatland II by Aydin Büyüktas

The Second Part in the Series Takes a Mind-Bending Turn on the Streets of the U.S.
Posted by Gestalten—05/2017

Turkish photographer Aydin Büyüktas has a dizzying approach to photographic montages: in the first volume of his Flatland series, Büyüktas created composite images that bent the landscapes of Instanbul into gravity-defying loops. For the second volume, he took to the streets of America, working with dozens of images from across Texas, Arizona, and California to create two-dimensional visuals that play with perspective. It’s a world with no end: as the images curl from bottom to top, any horizon lines are pushed out of the plane of sight. The secret to Büyüktas unconventional photomontages? He used a drone-mounted camera to capture the world from above.

Photographers and designers like Büyüktas are using photographic composites as a new way to visualize and conceive of the world in which we live—a concept dubbed PhotoViz by renowned designer Nicholas Felton. Find out more in our book PhotoViz, co-edited by Felton himself.
