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.

Drones are so useful in photography , & , these photos are creative. They make me a bit dizzy, though.

Has anyone thought about scraping for parts. Like seriously how many times we have to buy a brand new one when you could just get a used one

As we enter the grand solar minimum, this indoor gardening area is going to be a great investment.

This is interesting because one can see that the stitching is not always perfect.

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.
