The men recalled, with remarkable consistency, private sessions with Mr. Weber in which he asked them to undress and led them through breathing and “energy” exercises. Models were asked to breathe and to touch both themselves and Mr. Weber, moving their hands wherever they felt their “energy.” Often, Mr. Weber guided their hands with his own.

In the industry, boundaries between the acceptable and the unacceptable treatment of models have been etched in shades of gray.This has allowed prominent photographers to cross the line with impunity for decades, sexually exploiting models and assistants. The experience, once seen as the price models had to pay for their careers, is now being called something else: abuse of power and sexual harassment.Fifteen current and former male models who worked with Bruce Weber, whose racy advertisements for companies like Calvin Klein and Abercrombie & Fitch helped turn him into one of the foremost commercial and fine art photographers, have described to The New York Times a pattern of what they said was unnecessary nudity and coercive sexual behavior, often during photo shoots.

More than 1,400 participants around the world took part in the independent third-party research.The results were surprising – even a bit disconcerting, says Trafalgar. Rather than travel evoking wanderlust, the wonder of travel is getting lost.A staggering 89% of respondents say travel is enjoyable but stressful and difficult to plan, and 49% of those surveyed claimed that ‘real’ travel experiences didn’t actually feel that real – that travel is in fact becoming a common tourist trail.More than a third (37%) said they felt they didn’t see any ‘real culture’ on their last trip and almost half of participants said if they did, these experiences were not unique. And 61% of guests are feeling the negative effects of overtourism.More news: Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesGood travel is an opportunity to step away from daily life and pressures, be surprised and challenged, learn, appreciate and experience something new, says Trafalgar.These findings of ‘wonder-lost’ – combined with the research of what people are seeking when they travel – has driven Trafalgar’s innovation across the new Europe & Britain 2019 program, which provides loyal Canadian agents and their clients with:REAL EASEWith 72 years of expertise encompassing seven continents, Trafalgar says it knows that good travel still exists – if it’s done right. The stress of planning is taken care of. The logistics of formulating the perfect itinerary such as quality accommodation, comfortable transport, plenty of meals, VIP admission to the sites and unique Trafalgar highlights are all included so clients don’t have to worry about a thing.Trafalgar offers unique experiences clients couldn’t do independently, such as a visit to the Pope’s gardens at Castel Gandolfo via the shortest national railway system in the world – just 300 metres.“What if clients were taken to get their iconic photo of the Eiffel tower, but also got to go somewhere else incredible without the crowd, such as the catacombs of Notre Dame and walk the spectacular Latin Quarter? This formula is what allows guests the freedom to just be; be in the moment, be happy and be inspired,” says the company.More news: Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesREAL CONNECTIONSNo matter what trip clients choose, they know each carefully crafted itinerary is packed with real experiences “that will connect them to the soul of the places Trafalgar goes.” They’ll break bread with locals who are proud to bring them into their homes, share their cultures and tell their tales on Trafalgar’s exclusive ‘Be My Guest’ experiences, which also help sustain their communities.Clients can also stay somewhere that’s more than just a bed for the night, on one of Trafalgar’s ‘Stays with Stories’ including the Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg dating back to 1736, where some of the most romantic scenes from the Sound of Music were filmed.REAL JOYWhen the elements of ease and connections come together, allowing guests to really be in the moment, really connect to each destination and help to sustain the people, places and planet along the way – that’s when real joy is experienced, perspective felt on what’s important and one’s core values are uncovered. “This is ‘The Good Life’ – what travel is all about,” says Trafalgar.To learn more about Trafalgar, visit Trafalgar.com.Download the article here.
