Truly Mind-Bending Photos! The Incredible Twisted Landscapes Of Photographer Aydin Buyuktas!

Welcome To A Surreal American Junkyard!

I came across this photo and was mesmerized: a junkyard full of abandoned cars, broken down, twisted and stretched out to give the entire image a surreal, science fiction quality.

This is the amazing work of Photographer Aydin Buyuktas!

Photographer Aydin Buyutkas photographed some iconic images of America’s western states, using a process that turns the images into works of art – the “Red Road” photo just one example.

These surreal images of America’s wild west highlight nature and industry in the vastness of this part of the country!

Photographer Aydin Buyuktas shoots these in a very specific way – a process that takes months…I know this because of the great story that I came across in The Guardian, which reports:

“He spent a month driving 10,000 miles across Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas to create these distorted images, which are collages composed of 18 to 20 pictures that take about two months to complete after shooting”

It leads to images like this – a refinery out in the middle of nowhere:

These photos are works of art – beautiful – but haunting as well.

I could look at these all day – so fascinating!

The stark images of America’s west reminded me that this year Best Picture was filmed in this area as well:

It’s a world far removed from us – thousands and thousands who live in America’s vast west – with no homes but their cars and campers…click here to see more about this riveting film:

Let me know what you think of these amazing photos!

I have been experimenting with a unique style of photography that some of you have seen in previous stories:

Yes, this is the shot of my wife and I “hanging out” with the unique “Toadstools” of Grand Escalante National Park! More to come!
