Aydın Büyüktaş

Aydın Büyüktaş, who was born in Ankara in 1972, dropped out form Bilkent University Tourism Management Department because it was not his future dream. After moving to Istanbul in 2000’s, he took charge in many awarded movies and advertising drives, while he is working for avant-garde companies such as Sinefekt and Makinefx after having improved himself in the fields of visual effect, 3D, animation and video. He started to give priority to freelance works after his character, which was designed by him in the form of 3D in 2008, gained international popularity. While he interested in Photography, he also has been continuing his academic education at the department of photography of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University since 2012.

  1. Looking at Aydın Büyüktaş’ work is like a demonstration of the Hollow Earth theories of John Cleves Symmes Jr.,and like being able to enter the realms Jules Verne’s 1864 novel ‘Voyage au centre de la Terre’, William R. Bradshaw’s ‘The Goddess of Atvatabar’ (1892) or Vladimir Obruchev’s more believable ‘Plutonia’ (Плутония) written in 1915. Each presents us with the idea of a hollow Earth inhabited on the inside of the lithosphere, which would be curved in this way, with no horizon. Büyüktaş presents us with a radical revision of our concept of landscape. Thank you for this image-rich post.
