Constructed Photography versus Non-constructed or ‘Straight Photography’

A Rough Sketch With Annotations Showing How in My Eyes Constructed Photography Differs From Straight Photography

I was inspired unusually by a video game to make this post which I suppose had been in the back of my head for a while now. In the game Kingdom Hearts III (2019), there is a photography mini-game involving photographing Mickey Mouse emblems. Most of them are against surfaces and are just hard to find. However, one is made up of 3 different circles on 3 different planes that wouldn’t make sense unless viewed from the right perspective. Of course I had come across Georges Rousse before whose work is very similar in execution of this concept but it also made me think of normal or ‘straight' photography. Here, differing subjects are brought together through juxtapositions to form interesting photographs.
