Aydın Büyüktaş, Turkish photographer we know with his previous photo manipulation series Flatland, made a trip to US at the end of the year. Two month of meticulous planning, a month of aerial drone photography and few more of compositing to make a single photo, the results are mind-bending.
Before American Landscapes, Büyüktaş got his initial inspiration from Edwin Abbott’s sci-fi novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. The century-old story tells of a two-dimensional society who, after telling others about the existence of another dimension, is accused of being a heretic. “I was very impressed by the book written in 1884 exemplifying the difficulties in comprehending the way of interconnecting the dimensions and the inter-dimensional transition. The fact that the book tried to tell the inter-dimensional transition and the third dimension in second dimension corresponded to my inquiry about the third dimension,” Büyüktaş says to Creators.
