Joel Tjintjelaar is a Netherlands-based photographer who takes amazing black-and-white landscape images. The pictures reveal environments that seem to stretch on forever, as if roads never ended and bridges went on for eternity.

What's really distinct about Joel Tjintjelaar's photographs is that they have a surreal aspect to them. It's almost as if the places that Joel Tjintjelaar has captured don't exist outside of a made-up world. Looking into his images, I feel as though I've stepped into the Twilight Zone, where I'm the only person in an eerie dimension.
