Fashion photographer Bruce Weber released a statement following allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.

On Wednesday, Weber took to his Instagram page to deny the claims. “I want to address the recent allegations made against me. I unequivocally deny these charges and will vigorously defend myself,” he wrote. “I have spent my career capturing the human spirit through photographs and am confident that, in due time, the truth will prevail. I am grateful for the outpouring of support I have received.”

In December 2017, model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber in the New York Supreme Court and accused the photographer of sexual harassment and misconduct during a shoot, according to the New York Post.

On Dec. 5, male model Mark Ricketson came forward with claims of similar treatment in press conference held with Boyce and lawyer Lisa Bloom.

Following sweeping allegations of sexual harassment against people in Hollywood and other industries, the fashion community has slowly begun to speak up as well. In October, Christy Turlington Burns told WWD, “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry.” And in November, Edie Campbell wrote an open letter to the industry in WWD, describing rampant “abuse” toward models.
