Reflections in a Trick Mirror Shows Some Human Conceits (1946)

Yale Joel was born in 1919 in the Bronx, New York. His father gave him a Kodak Brownie camera when he was a teenager. He started taking photographs, and continued for the next 70 years.

In 1946, from the darkened interior of a stuffy booth in the lobby of Loew's Criterion cinema in Times Square, Yale Joel stole portraits of unguarded moviegoers through a transparent or 'two-way' mirror. These hilarious and surprising portraits as a harmless diversion and curiosity. However, the surreptitious technology used to obtain these photographs, their unrestrained dissemination in a national magazine, and the condescending tone of accompanying text raises complicated ethical issues: questions of personal privacy, surveillance, and ownership of one's own image, to which people have become increasingly conscious since 1946, in an exponentially more image-saturated culture.

The Giant's Causeway

The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland, about three miles (4.8 km) northeast of the town of Bushmills.

The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about 12 metres (39 ft) high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 metres (92 ft) thick in places.
