The recording begins in the middle of Helmut Newton's presentation with a student inquiring about color versus black and white photography. Newton misunderstands the question, interpreting it as a matter of preference for models of color. He then discusses his opinions of fashion and fashion photography, as well as his practice. The workshop ends with a question and answer session.
