Turkish graphic designer and photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has mastered the art of surrealism, and his latest project will leave your head spinning in the best way.

Büyüktaş uses drones to take a series of overhead photographs, which he then blends together to produce a superb 'declining' effect, in which the world below looks progressively smaller and flatter - the project is, in fact, called Flatland. The name is derived from a book by English author Edwin Abbott, in which he imagines a 2-dimensional world inhabited by geometric figures.

Flatland II is Büyüktaş's latest portfolio entry, featuring scenes he photographed while traveling across the US. We previously featured his stunning landscapes of Istanbul, so compare the East to the West below, and just remember that you're not actually falling - it's the picture.

Just love the farm house. While everything else is turning brown, it remains green.

This is one of the neat things you can do with a drone and a camera. Then just stitch away.............

This is my favorite: Simplicity and elegance all stitched into one scene.

Somebody please explain how. I'm thinking he tilted a drone while ascending/descending and took some kind of panorama picture. But still don't get it how.
