Friday photos: Sharks and Mirrors at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

When I visited New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2009, visitors were expressly forbidden from taking photos of Damien Hirst’s “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living,” otherwise known as “the pickled shark.”

Sometimes, however, problems have built-in solutions. The pickled shark took on a more interesting dimension when viewed in the reflection of another nearby sculpture, a large, mirrored piece by Anish Kapoor simply called “Untitled.”
