Inception style dreamscapes give everyday scenes including farms, junkyards and quarries an unsettling yet ethereal allure

If your head’s spinning, it’s probably nothing to do with beer or wine goggles – these surrealist images are designed to make you feel dizzy.

The collection, called Flatland II, is the work of Turkish graphic designer and photographer Aydin Büyüktaş.

He uses a drone to take a series of overhead photos, which he then blends together to create a distorted effect.

In each image, it looks like the scene is being squeezed or becoming flatter – hence the collection’s name.

Büyüktaş said he was inspired by Brit author Edwin Abbott’s 1884 book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions.

The plot takes place in a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures.

And if you think Büyüktaş’ images look familiar, it may well be that they remind you of Christopher Nolan’s unsettling thriller Inception.

He took the photos over a month in the US states, Arizona, Texas, California and New Mexico.

They feature everyday scenes such as farms, fields, roads and sports pitches – as you’ve never seen them before.

Below is a selection of his work. You can view more at his website . Information on upcoming exhibitions can be found here and here .
