This is about powerful people creating a system where people with lesser power are expected to give in to sexual advances in order to get work.

It's not an "equal" situation where you can "slap a hand away". These powerful abusers have other powerful people helping them to carry out this harassment/abuse.

The modeling industry was designed to service old men. There is no reason it needs to be this way.

R16 — these are NOT jobs of necessity like just about any other job. This guy sought out being a model for high pay and fame. I am not saying that justifies harassment BUT it does make it really hard for him to say convincingly that he didn’t have any idea he would be exposed to lewd conduct and it makes it really hard for him to say that his sense of violation from a grope (as opposed to a rape) is reasonable or acute. Publishing this guy’s story is basically a derailment tactic intended to muddy the waters. Men face not even an iota if the quantity or quality of daily harassment that women of all ages and attractiveness face.

I get that this was a guy pursuing a modeling career. But, Why is there such a lack of any empathy for men? Having been a 16-22yo guy at one time I can tell you that you end up in situations that are uncomfortable and those situations are sometimes at the hands of men AND WOMEN! As a male, you are actually in a worse spot than a woman in the aftermath of these assaults, as society has always told you to be strong & defend yourself while holding in your emotions.

Seriously, what you people want to do is make everyone POWERLESS and therefore not remotely responsible for how they react to a situation should one arrive -- and I assure you there are plenty of people, male and female, who have slapped hands away, walked out on meetings that went wrong, and just said "Fuck you" in general. And many of them did quite well since nobody has that much power in the business (you can piss off 50 casting directors and there are 500 more out there and all you need is a couple to like and believe in you. Ditto, agents, etc.)

The notion of models bending over for every photographer just because of some imbalance of power is straight out of Lena Dunham thinking and we all know how flawed that is. You don't like it, leave. Or, as Courtney Love put it so well, DON'T GO in the first place. (An agent sets up these gigs; models don't just walk in from the bus station. There are plenty of people to confer with over this stuff, even when a model or actor is starting out. This "it all happened TO me" mentality is pissing me off big time. Say no, grow a couple, and leave -- and don't come back. So much more of this is within our control but nobody wants to believe that since what fun is it if you aren't a Victim of your own life?

WTF-- have you all never read or seen "Chop Suey"?

It was like N A M B L A ran a publishing company and movie studio

It was all about how he found this working class kid named Peter Johnson at a wrestling camp when he was 16

Paid off Johnson's parents to allow him to move in with Weber in his house upstate where, as Weber outlines in extreme detail in the book, he would have Johnson dress up in different homoerotic costumes (sailor, farmboy, etc.) and have his (Weber's) friends come over to ogle Peter and photograph him.

Eventually, after much cajoling, he talked Peter into posing nude.

Johnson supposedly went to the local high school up in wherever Weber lives in the Catskills. "Hi, I'm Peter the new kid. I live with that famous gay photographer so he can take photos of me whenever he wants."

And then to top it all off, Johnson got married when he was 19, no doubt to prove to himself/the world that he was actually straight.

Weber should have his balls removed with a wire cutter and no anesthesia and probably a few fingers and toes as wel.

Truly a horrible human, protected by the fashion establishment.

I think it's safe to say that everyone in fashion industry/rag trade is a major asshole and a horrible human being.

Oh please, seriously, when did all these Victorian prudes arrive at DL? Weber no more molested Peter from "Chop Suey" than the man in the moon. I love Peter's story about how Weber was in town and wanted to see models and how Peter was warned that the photographer was a homo who would lure him into evil and don't do it -- and he says, more or less, "Where do I sign up?" That is almost every straight kid I have known in the business. Not necessarily curious but cool with it all.

A couple of years ago, the Daily Fail had a video interview with Bruce Weber. The topic was the accusations against Terry Richardson. Weber said something like Terry Richardson needs "to get help." In the Comments section, someone called Weber a hypocrite because it was well known within the industry that Weber's thing is young males vs. Richardson's taste for young females. Another person commented that they worked for an agency in the 80s or 90s and although they warned Weber's agent that the male model does not do nudity, Weber often hinted during the go see that the model wouldn't be considered for Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein ads if he didn't disrobe. Then you have the Michael Bergin book, which I always thought was more interesting as a male model memoir than a book about Carolyn Bessette, where Weber attempted to give Bergin what Weber called a "Chinese massage." Of course this entailed Bergin being completely naked.

I am torn on this. On the one hand I think these guys have a right to be respected and that being molested by a creepy guy is not one of them.

On the other hand, even when I first saw his work 30 years ago I knew guys would have to put out. Let’s be honest here. You become a Bruce Weber model , everyone knows you have been immortalised in some way. Your beauty will be forever be seen and admired.

You are a male model in a world dominated by female fashion and yes some guys will come onto you. But let’s be honest here, you are a model because you are trying to seduce people into buying the product or seeing themselves with the product or seeing themselves with you.

You are seducing the camera as well. You want the camera to love you.

If I had to live my life again I would ride a dildo and fuck an audience to be photographed by Weber.

Men can punch. Unless it's a kid whose hand is being shoved down his own pants, there is no excuse. Even if you "froze", you still did it. Grow the fuck up.

Weber might have a groping hand, but at least he had a good eye for classic male beauty. He was one of the last true aesthetes.

The guys he picked out of obscurity and immortalized in world-wide campaigns (e.g. Bergin for Calvin Klein) were great choices.

Once Weber’s jettisoned, classic-look / beefcake models won’t have as many big-campaign opportunities.

The new post-Weber fashion is for borderline anorexic, freaky-looking male models (thanks to those ‘innovators’ at Prada and Burberry).

And the rest of today’s big campaigns go to HW actors and their ugly spawn.

At least this new batch of male models (e.g. Jude Law’s son) will be safe from molestation. No one would care to bother.

Former 80's model Daryl Janney spoke today with from Business of Fashion:

D.L. Janney, a former male model, who recently released a memoir called “Blacklisted,” which details his time in the industry, said that while on a break during a shoot for British Vogue in 1982, Weber asked him to strip down to his underwear for a photo he could take to Calvin Klein, whose campaigns Weber was shooting at the time. Janney was eager to comply until Weber asked him to get completely nude. According to Janney, Weber said that the photos would not be published anywhere and were for “his own use, and to show Calvin.”

When Janney refused, he said the photographer refused to speak with him for the rest of the day. On another occasion, Weber had hired both Janney and his brother for a shoot for GQ; Weber asked the two brothers to remove their shirts and, according to Janney, “pretend to be boyfriends.” When they refused, Janney said they were subject to verbal abuse. As outlined in his book, Janney believes that Weber “blacklisted” him from the industry shortly after, making it impossible for him to find work as a model.

Alex Geerman, a former model, massage therapist and healer, said that in 2008, Weber asked him to do “breathing exercises” that involved non-consensual touching of the chakras, including the root chakra, which is located around the genitals. “I didn’t understand what he was doing, and he didn’t explain it,” recalled Geerman, who said he left the shoot so disturbed he told his mother, who was waiting outside the studio: “I don’t want to do this anymore.” Yet, Geerman said that although he was upset at the time, he no longer believes that Weber did anything wrong. “It took me years to figure out, it wasn't a sexual thing. It was an art thing,” said Geerman.

Another one:

Christopher Cates, a fit model, said that while on set for a photoshoot at Weber’s Miami home in 2006, the photographer asked each model to join him alone in a guest bedroom upstairs, away from the rest of the crew. Cates said that when he entered the room, Weber asked him to remove his shirt and pants, and later his underwear, and then proceeded to touch him inappropriately. According to Cates, Weber took photos during the incident using a digital SLR camera, though those photos were, to Cates’ knowledge, never used for any professional purpose.

However, after reading Weber’s statement in response to the New York Times story, he changed his mind. “The statements that Bruce and Mario, or should I say their lawyers made, pains me,” he wrote via email. “I don’t understand their denial. Either their sense of entitlement has so clouded their ethical judgement, it’s not based in reality anymore. Or they are going through so much pain internally and are destroying themselves.”

It seems “Blacklisted” is a (suspiciously and opportunistically well-timed) re-published (December 2017) version of Janney’s previous book - “Nineteen: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Model” (June 2016).

James Joyce must be turning in his grave because of this ‘hommage’.

The blurb about the book is pure comic gold:

“Embark on this intimate journey into a world remembered and created from the troubled, yet determined mind of a 19-year-old boy. His pragmatic mind coupled with a tortured soul will lead the way.
A young person of rare physical attraction and toughness and decency, but drained of self-confidence and wracked by painful and persistent self-doubt.There is no fairy tale ending for this young man ... but there is hope.”

^Another '5-star' editorial review:

“And often the savviest of young men remain frustrated as they reach for a carrot of success that never quite seems to land squarely in their hands. Such is Daryl: and as readers follow his successes and failures, so they come to admire and understand the foundations of his beliefs as he begins to acknowledge that he is "the one person who brings me all the pain: myself." Revelations such as these charge an emotional story of determination even when odds are firmly stacked against the protagonist.”

A "healer"? Off-topic, but I've noticed many models are MAJORLY into outlandish new-age stuff.

A "breathing exercise" for the "root chakra" around the "genitals"? Oh, dear. Anyone who falls for that transparent trick deserves a Darwin award.

Yet, Geerman said that although he was upset at the time, he no longer believes that Weber did anything wrong. “It took me years to figure out, it wasn't a sexual thing. It was an ART thing,” said Geerman.

From The View interview video. Josh Ardolf’s account:

Ardolf: “On this shoot we ended up just shooting around the house. Bruce’s house. And eventually I was brought to a private room of his by his assistant. During this [*dramatic emotional pause, where Ardolf temporarily can’t speak as he’s overcome with emotion]* we did some breathing exercises. And we were shooting. Eventually I was nude. He told me to grab his hand and put it were I felt the “energy”. And I was comfortable with that. So I put it on my shoulder, I put it on my chest. I put it wherever I was comfortable with. And then he forced his hand on me – inappropriately! I didn’t know what to do. I was 20 years old. I was in shock”. *sniff* *sniff*

From the same video. Bobby Roache’s account (first part).

Roache (in a more upbeat, jovial voice than Josh Ardolf’s ‘devastated’ tone): “I went to his house. Everything was ok with my agent. When I got there, I walked through his house. Played with his little dogs right there. Went to this little side-section of his garden. He said: “Let’s just take some photos”. We was [sp] going. I was ready. So [Weber] said: “I don’t think…err… I’m feeling your energy - correctly. Let me put my hand on your forehead.” So me, I’m like: “My energy is great, man! Like I’m ok”. [laughing] And, yeah, he started doing his waving and started putting his hands all over my body. So me, I’m comfortable with my body! I’m like: “You touch me, it’s just hands”. But then he started to really get aggressive. So I just was like: “Man, I’m just… I didn’t sign up for this.” So I talked to him, I was like: “Ya know - I’m ok. I’m really alright. I actually have to go and finish my shoot.”

I like Roache. Tells it straight. Didn’t lose his cool during the alleged incident, handled it well. Doesn’t break down into a melodramatic performance, as if he’s on the verge of tears, because of some handsy fondling action (compared to Ardolf).

Jason Fedele's speech in the video contained very good ideas. Though I’m not a fan of how he kept (mis-)using the term “misnomer”:

Fedele: “I think there’s a misnomer out there that people think that because they hurt us they must be naturally evil.”
Interviewer: “And people also don’t think it happens to men”. Fedele: “Another misnomer”.

He meant “misconception”. “Misnomer” means the inaccurate use of specific terminology, or an inaccurate name for smthg. E.g. a “Koala bear” is a misnomer b/c it’s not a bear.

Some people do use the word “misnomer” autologically (i.e. as a synonym for “misconception”) – but it just doesn't sound right.

While on a test shooting with Francesco Scavullo the late 1960s, Bruce met Nan Bush, who was then representing Frank and managing his studio. Nan was instrumental in launching Bruce’s career in the fashion world. He began photographing fashion catalogs—his first being a reshoot for the department store Dillards, which won catalog of the year. So began the life-long partnership of Bruce and Nan.

So it sounds like many photographers are unprofessional, hitting inappropriately on their work subordinates (models). Seems it’s a frequent occurrence in the industry and Weber’s far from alone. But he & Testino are getting most of the stick b/c they’re famous & rich (with deep pockets, making them good aim for lawsuits). As for all the other photographers who sexually propositioned their models - crickets.

Why is it so quiet in the female modelling world? As if Terry Richardson is the only perv. There are many straight photographers too, surely quite a few are sleazy & handsy. Did Linda, Naomi, Claudia, Cindy, etc. never get groped? Hard to believe. Females also start modeling younger. 15-year-olds working for older people. It’s a recipe for sexual manipulation.

Now that Bill Cosby has been found guilty, attention will no doubt turn to others in the crosshairs of #MeToo. Fashion photographer Bruce Weber is currently being sued by male models who worked for him, alleging sexual misconduct on his shoots.

The story that's emerging of Weber's MO is that when he took a fancy to one of the male models on a job, he'd suggest that the two of them went for a walk. If, by the time they'd returned to his studio, the boy hadn't offered the photographer a blowjob, there would be no photoshoot for him.
