“The cinema offers a number of possible pleasures. One is scopophilia. There are circumstances in which looking itself is a source of pleasure, just as, in the reverse formation, there is pleasure in being looked at. ” – Laura Mulvey

Quotation taken from Laura Mulvey’s essay Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema (II. Pleasure in Looking/Fascination with the Human Form).
