Pale Blue Dot, Voyager 1 image
This unique narrow-angle color image is of the Earth, dubbed 'Pale Blue Dot', is a part of the first ever 'portrait' of the solar system taken by Voyager 1. The spacecraft acquired a total of 60 frames for a mosaic of the solar system from a distance of more than 4 billion miles from Earth and about 32 degrees above the ecliptic. From Voyager's great distance Earth is a mere point of light, less than the size of a picture element even in the narrow-angle camera. Earth was a crescent only 0.12 pixel in size. Coincidentally, Earth lies right in the center of one of the scattered light rays resulting from taking the image so close to the sun. This blown-up image of the Earth was taken through three color filters -- violet, blue and green -- and recombined to produce the color image. The background features in the image are artifacts resulting from the magnification.

A photographic study of Rosemary Kennedy, daughter of the United States Ambassador, Joseph P. Kennedy. Angus McBean (1904-1990), began his career in the theatre making masks and designing sets. He took an interest in photography from an early age and from the early 1930s took it up as a profession after a stint as a window dresser in the department store, Liberty's. McBean's work was famous for being surreal and experimental, with work frequently featured in TheTatler and Bystander and The Sketch between the mid 1930s to the 1950s.
