  • The images by Turkish photographer Aydin Büyüktas are literally mind-bending
  • After going viral, and attracting international press attention, they're now available here, in book-format, for the first time

"Aydin Büyüktas' photographs are a bit like the first plunge on a rollercoaster. The scene plummets away from you, leaving you disoriented yet giddy and just a bit unsettled as you try to make sense of just what you're seeing" - WIRED

"Büyüktas creates Inception-like scenes by warping Istanbul's cityscapes" - Saatchi Gallery

"Aydin Büyüktas bends brains with dizzyingly distorted views of American landscapes." - Designboom

An American football pitch as a skateboard ramp and the Aya Sofia as a rollercoaster: the images by Turkish photographer Aydin Büyüktas are literally mind-bending. After going viral, they are now finally also available in book format, including entirely new images and a making-of, which shows the photographer's working methods with drone technology. His brainchild Flatland is named after Edwin Abbott Abbott's satire book about a two-dimensional world populated by geometric figures, from which certain parts have been included in this book.

Aydin Büyüktas is a photographer and visual artist. His Flatland series was well-received by international press and was featured by Wired, The Times and many others.
