You could analyze this with devtools to be sure, but just based on how it looks I'd guess that it's reasonably simple:

The image is probably inside a container element that is smaller than the image, with overflow set to hidden. Then a JavaScript routine is triggered by scroll events that makes slight changes to the image position based on the scroll position.

That page has several nice effects, my favorite was the "flashlight" effect where the sharp circle follows the mouse around an otherwise hazy photo.
