An interesting phenomenon in optics is that it is possible to see a personbehind a shower curtain better than that person can see us. This effect hasbeen referred to as the shower curtain effect.We address the challenge of giving a mathematical description of thisphenomenon. In addition, we identify what governs the effect and discuss howimaging algorithms can be designed and analyzed when the objective is to imagea source hidden behind a complex section.
