Mind-Bending Photos of Turkish Cityscapes Look Straight from Inception

Turkish photographer and digital artist Aydın Büyüktaş turns the streets of Istanbul upside down in these warped cityscapes that appear to curve infinitely upward and outward toward the skies.

“We live in places that most of the times don’t draw our attention, places that transform our memories, places that the artist gives another dimension,” says Büyüktaş. “These works aim to leave the viewer alone with a surprising visuality, ironic as well as multidimensional, romantic point of view.”

The project was originally inspired by Edwin A. Abbott’s satirical novella “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions.” It is a story of a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures.
