Turkish Artist Aydın Büyüktaş Gives Us A Surreal, “Inception-esque” View Of Turkey

When Christopher Nolan released “Inception” back in 2010, it blew our minds much like “The Matrix” did when it was released in 1999.  Now, Turkish artist Aydın Büyüktaş takes us to Istanbul, and shows us the distant land of Turkey like we’ve never seen it before.
