This is a really clever piece of photography. Must have taken ages to set up. It's a sort of optical illusion mimicking a Photoshopped composite image of 4 photos, made by aligning objects outwards from a conjunction at the central perspective, on precise horizontal and
vertical planes - like a cross-hairs in a gunsight. Some objects in each quadrant intrude disconcertingly into other quadrants, so it doesn't look "right" - causes a sort of perceptual disorientation or confusion.
Those words probably don't explain it very well. You'll see more if you examine the images below.
Camera is a Phase One P45+
(Very nice! What the heck is that?), according to the EXIF data in the images.
