As the great Mark Twain once observed, truth can truly be stranger than fiction. These bewildering photos, seemingly depicting elaborate tunnels to an infinite sky, are in reality shots of century-old buildings found on Nagykörút (or Grand Boulevard), a major thoroughfare running through Budapest, Hungary. Yet by turning the lens upwards, local photographer Zsolt Hlinka has managed to showcase old architecture from a riveting new perspective, where everything looks distorted, gravity-defying, and all in all, Inception-like in the most wondrous way. For the full series, check out Hlinka's project site.
