Which direction was the camera pointing at while taking this picture?

North
South
East
West
The entire celestial sphere seems to rotate slowly around the North-South axis of Earth's rotation. So the camera must have been pointed North or South, depending on the hemisphere the photo was taken at. But the brightest star in the centre must be Polaris, at the south celestial pole currently lacks a bright star to mark its position.
