I call this one "Angles". In its physical existence the object photographed is a tractor sitting in a shed at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming near York, UK.
That might sound like an odd way to describe a photograph but it makes sense if you think about it for a second. The photograph is not the tractor. A photograph is not the thing it depicts. A photograph is a piece of art created by sifting physical reality through the creative tendencies of a human being and some amount of physical process depending on the medium. The question of whether photography is art will last forever. My own opinion is "it can be". Much as paint can become art, a blank film in a camera can become art.
Coming back to this particular photograph, the information that it is showing a piece of farm machinery from a particular angle is completely unimportant and frankly uninteresting. I choose to see it as representative of the fractured nature of reality based on perception and angle of view. One of my favourite quotes from “The Matrix “ is “Eventually you come to realise that it is not the spoon that bends, it is yourself”. We create our own reality by will or by accident and my reality naturally influences how I interpret art and how I form my own photographs.
