No official biography has ever been published, and the most eccentric figure in the world of fashion has always been discreet about his personal life. Karl Lagerfeld draws his life: his childhood home, his father, his mother, his school, and Germany. He draws post-war Paris, where he arrived alone, to start a career in the very closed world of fashion. He draws all the fashion periods and trends he has experienced, and which he has marked with his creative genius.
In this episode, the contestants have to deal with travel photography. They fly to the area around Ragusa, in Sicily, where they will try to capture its essence through locations, faces or traditions. With a single photograph, they will have to capture the complexity of a territory rich in contradictions. Photographer David Alan Harvey mentors.
The photographers fly to Hamburg. The task takes place at the beginning of the day, when the city wakes up and everything starts moving. To move on to the next round, the contestants will have to capture in a single shot their own interpretation of the rush hour. Starting from the Hamburg central train station, a junction for commuters, busses, trams, trains and underground lines, the contestants have to grasp the shades of a place of many faces. They have three hours to explore the city, find an original point of view and take the photo that will allow them to keep going on the next challenge.
Running without legs, fighting without arms, swimming without being able to see: it sounds impossible for anyone. In this task, the contestants will be asked to portrait who make it happen: the Paralympic champions. How difficult it is to live with a physical disability, what makes an athlete constantly surpass their own limits and, above all, what's the satisfaction to overcome huge obstacles, driven only by willpower? These are only some of the questions the contestants will try to answer with a reportage of three or five photos they will produce, spending the day with a European Paralympic champion.
The remaining contestants fly to the UK for the London Fashion Week. Their aim is to take three photographs that bear witness to the world of fashion and the humanity that whirls around the high-life events. But the focus will not be on the designers and their creations, but on the people who live and breathe fashion: fashion victims, buyers, bloggers, journalists and, obviously, the photographers themselves as well.
