Random scattering of light by a turbid layer prevents conventional imaging of objects hidden behind it. Angular correlations in the scattered light, created by the so-called optical memory effect, have been shown to enable computational image retrieval of hidden sources. However, basic memory-effect imaging contains no spatial (x) information, as only angular (k-space) measurements are made. Here, we use windowed Fourier transforms to record scattered-light images in the full {x,k} phase space. The result is the ability to discriminate size and depth of individual sources that are hidden behind a thin scattering layer.
