The globe is composed of magnificent both rural and urban landscapes, which is why Netherlands-based photographer Wouter van Buuren created a spherical photographic representation of this reality. Buuren took aerial shots of different locations in places like China, New York and Netherlands shaped these stunning photographs like Earth.

The result is mind-blowing as spectacular panoramic views of skylines and green horizons become circular collages of colors and brilliant architecture.

The aerial collages by Wouter van Buuren give audiences a new perspective of the planet. He is holding a solo show at Witzenhausen Gallery in Amsterdam until February 4, 2012.
