Another English case in , R v Wilkins ,   resulted in a man who filmed his intercourse with five of his lovers for his own private viewing, being sentenced to imprisonment for eight months and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register, where his name would remain for ten years. In a more recent English case in , Mark Lancaster was found guilty and jailed for voyeurism, after having tricked an year-old student into traveling to a rented flat in Milton Keynes, where he filmed her with four secret cameras dressing up as a schoolgirl and posing for photographs before he had sex with her.
In the United States, video voyeurism is an offence in nine states  and may require the convicted person to register as a sex offender. Criminal voyeurism statutes are related to invasion of privacy laws  but are specific to unlawful surreptitious surveillance without consent and unlawful recordings including the broadcast, dissemination, publication, or selling of recordings involving places and times when a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy and a reasonable supposition they are not being photographed or filmed by "any mechanical, digital or electronic viewing device, camera or any other instrument capable of recording, storing or transmitting visual images that can be utilised to observe a person.
Saudi Arabia banned the sale of camera phones nationwide in April , but reversed the ban in December Some countries, such as South Korea and Japan , require all camera phones sold in their country to make a clearly audible sound whenever a picture is being taken. In , the Indian Parliament made amendments to the Indian Penal Code , introducing voyeurism as a criminal offence. Voyeurism is generally deemed illegal in Singapore. Singapore sentences technologically-enabled voyeurs to a maximum punishment of one year's jail and a fine under the context of insulting a woman's modesty.
Secret photography by law enforcement authorities is called surveillance and is not considered to be voyeurism, though it may be unlawful or regulated in some countries.

At one point she has created a DIY Bakram Studio using blankets and two space heaters, blowing out the electricity in her apartment building. She also dorks out on Lorrie Moore at a book festival. Oct 30, Robert rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lately I've been into reading graphic novels and comics at a much more luxurious pace than I used to, stretching them out not only to make them last longer but to really look at the graphics, to appreciate all the hard work that goes into creating them.
The book concludes on a dark, existential bent, revealing Bell as an artist with great difficulty connecting with others on a day-to-day, moment-by-moment basis, and likely ambivalent about the need to even do so. There is a lot going on her work and you should read it. Oct 16, Michelle rated it it was amazing. There are times when I think back on a book and decide my thoughts based on the vocabulary, the plot, the authors use of literary techniques and a million other judgements I've picked up over the years to assess the words scrolling through my brain.
This graphic novel, by Gabrielle Bell I judged not on the artwork, which was fabulous and humbling, but solely based on the way that I felt before, during and after reading it. I can only conclude that I am less alone for having picked up this book. Thanks to my friend Karen for sending me this, I'll now have to spend a day reading the entire Lucky web comic that The Voyeurs is pulled from. This is like watching someone's daily life, with all the awkward and terrible moments sprinkled with the surprising touching interactions that happen to all of us.
By the way, the page about hugging, I felt like I knew a person who thought about hugging just like that!!

I also saw myself in the forced-writing moments, for sure. Jul 03, David Schaafsma rated it liked it Shelves: This is a collection of work by Bell, different chapters about different aspects of her life. She's anti-social, doesn't understand herself or others well, is not particularly insightful about anything, and yet I found myself reading every page and liking it.
Some of it more than others. Relationships seem painfully hard for her. Maybe it's ironically fascinating in that she doesn't really get along with people and shares herself with us, anyway. Reminds me of Adrian Tomine in some ways, in that This is a collection of work by Bell, different chapters about different aspects of her life. Reminds me of Adrian Tomine in some ways, in that he is an unlikeable character or creates them in his fictions, and yet I am somehow intrigued by him and these characters, anyway.
There's honesty in that. There are some interesting experimental memoir pieces like the one about Scum Manifesto where much of it seems to be made up. Or a kind of surreal exchange with her sidekick, Tony. He says, "When you're here it's like a ghost is passing through… You're only partially present. Well, because she somehow still manages to be intriguing; we want to like her, and part of that is her artwork, which manages to be just cute enough and inviting, visually.
She's honest about her alienation. Sometimes I really like it. I'll keep reading her.

Still, I am beginning to learn that, as much as I love "traditional" memoirs, I may love "graphic" memoirs even more. I love to read published diaries, and in many ways that is what "The Voyeurs" is -- although there is not a clear "throughline" or overarching "plot" tying the many vignettes together, each of them has its own rising and falling tensions, along with a sense of universalism balanced with individuality and plenty of vulnerability.
I am not a cartoonist, but I related to many of Bell's struggles as an introvert who does most of her work within the confines of her own home, having also given into obsessive email checking, the need to totally "unplug" for a few days, resistance to leaving my home, and bouts of depression as she describes. This is my first time reading Bell, and unfortunately, it's the only collection by her my library carries. Still, I will keep my eyes peeled and gladly read more if the opportunity arises.
Aug 14, Nick rated it really liked it Shelves: The Voyeurs is difficult to describe. The title partly describes the life of the central character, supposedly based on Bell herself. If it is truly autobiographical, I'm amazed that Gabrielle Bell hasn't died of terminal moping, as she portrays herself as the most depressed and depressing person on the planet much of the time. The story is intriguing because she travels to all sorts of exciting places, interacts with amazing and creative people, and somehow comes out of it making the reader thin The Voyeurs is difficult to describe.
The story is intriguing because she travels to all sorts of exciting places, interacts with amazing and creative people, and somehow comes out of it making the reader think that she should get her meds checked. Bell is a self-educated artist who is really good at design and visuals, but she's also very good at self-deprecating writing.
She comes across as an agoraphobic depressive for much of the book, but somehow manages to make that interesting, as if we're voyeurs ourselves, watching this wreck of an artist. Whether we're watching her eat her way through a San Diego ComicCon or ignore the French countryside, it's actually riveting.

Oct 15, Raina rated it really liked it Shelves: I finally found a Gabrielle Bell book I really like!
I don't know if it's the color, or the fact that I've heard of most of her boyfriends, or that she travels and name-drops, but I really enjoyed reading this volume. I laughed out loud several times and identified with her. I really dug the first few entries, where she goes to a party on a roof and goes to Roosevelt Island.
Her trips to France and Japan, inside scoop on ComicCon, and struggles with adapting a feminist monsterwork were al Hooray! Her trips to France and Japan, inside scoop on ComicCon, and struggles with adapting a feminist monsterwork were all fun to read too.
Most of the pieces maybe all? She goes into her romantic entanglements, and I appreciated the structure of putting these in explicit chronological order. Honestly, it may have been Aaron Cometbus ' introduction that really made this gel for me. The whole very short intro is definitely worth reading, but the last line: It's true, Bell's work isn't as tell-all as many of the graphic novel creators I love.
But that's her art, really. Definitely worth the read, even if you haven't enjoyed her work before. Aug 27, Katie rated it really liked it. The Voyeurs is an obsessively-drawn, very personal graphic memoir, set up as a series of diary entries. Gabrielle Bell illustrates little snippets of her days, from the various comic-cons to a trip to France with boyfriend at the time Michel Gondry, to interactions with friends and family.
She comes across as often depressed and neurotic, but the comic still feels light. The first comic shows Gabrielle and her friends on the roof on a building watching some neighbors having sex. The rest of the The Voyeurs is an obsessively-drawn, very personal graphic memoir, set up as a series of diary entries. The rest of the book, the readers are the voyeurs, observing Gabrielle's life, warts and all. Feb 04, Stella rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is my first book comic by Gabrielle Bell and it won't be the last. Can't wait for my next Amazon package to arrive with "Lucky".
The book had no explicit theme but to show the real life, and oh, my I absolutely loved it, I could identify with most of it, I loved the fights she had with her boyfriend how real was that! Dec 02, Sarah Laing rated it it was amazing. I really loved this - Gabrielle Bell does the kind of diary comics that I do, only better. I follow her blog but she's curated this collection, and it has lots more power as a book.
She picked a theme - voyeurism - and kept revisiting it. The observations, the dialogue, is always super-sharp, and I related to her feeling of being a voyeur in one's own life - of always watching and not necessarily fully participating. Nov 29, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I could read more pages of this. She makes drawing and writing look effortless. Nov 21, Hannah Garden rated it it was amazing. It is hard to read a perfect thing like this without caving in to envy and despair, but whatever, sometimes you just have to suffer in your awful desperate jealous cave.
Dec 04, Mark Victor Young rated it really liked it Shelves: It is us, the readers, who are the voyeurs, peering in through this window into the mind of Bell in this graphic memoir version of her daily comic journal. Very angsty and conflicted, but well traveled. I enjoyed her weird point of view on things and liked the behind the scenes at comic-cons and bookstore events where she rubbed shoulders with other comic creators. Picked this up because another of hers was on a Ten Best list, but this is the only book by her at our local library.
Would love to It is us, the readers, who are the voyeurs, peering in through this window into the mind of Bell in this graphic memoir version of her daily comic journal. Would love to read more. Aug 09, Lauren rated it it was amazing. It's rare that I will laugh out loud while reading, but with this book I was constantly doing so. Bell calls attention to the ridiculous banalities that we all have to suffer through and also the redeeming qualities of people or a single moment.
Jun 21, Jeffrey D. Jul 24, Steve Hersh rated it it was amazing. Once I started this, I couldn't put it down. I loved these comics, loved everything about them. Gabrielle Bell is a really talented writer and artist and I'm happy that my friend Drew suggested her. I hope to read more of her work soon. Mar 16, Tatiana rated it it was amazing.
