25 amazing aerial photographs with a new perspective of the worldJanuary 14, 2022
In a series of photographs called “Flatland”, Turkish artist and photo manipulator Aydın Büyüktaş uses a collection of aerial photographs to create these images which give a new perspective to the world.
Aydın Büyüktaş says that he got the initial inspiration for this style of photography from the book “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” by Edwin Abbott which explores the interconnecting of dimensions and transition between them from a geometry standpoint.
Taking the thought-provoking ideas from the book, Büyüktaş set about creating a series of photographs to visually represent these concepts.
In 2017, Büyüktaş began the painstaking process of planning out his trip. It took two months to find the perfect spots to create the images he envisioned. Using Google Earth he scoured the United States picking a variety of spots that in the end would cover 45 shooting locations and an astounding 10,000 miles.
Shooting the photos took around a month and a lot of travelling across Arizona, Texas, California and New Mexico. Each of the images you see in this collection is actually a combination of around 18 to 20 drone photographs carefully stitched together to create a curved collage of the landscape.
