The rocks on the left of the body shadow, and the rocks to the right of the body shadow...

... how can they be pointing in such severely different directions when they are clearly quite close.

Parallel sunlight would have them at least in generally the same direction (they had no other lighting).

These shadows are around 40 deg to the right and 40 deg to the left.

Re wide angle lens...... were they swapping lenses on the Hasselblad?

... and wouldn't a wide angle have the opposite effect vis a vis shadow direction?

I haven't noticed this effect on other photos.
