These photographs clarify not only a new meaning in the photographed object, but also clarify the photographer’s viewpoint from where he sees an object. By moving the viewpoint only a little, we see a new scene that we would not have seen otherwise. And then we can find the constructivist patterns: the crack of the road, the shadow reflected in the stone wall, snow piled up on a guardrail, etc. I tried to find “a decisive place” by using this small change in viewpoint.
