The lecture, organised by Gulf Photo Plus, was a compliment to Flach's current exhibition which concluded with a charity art auction, sponsored by Wafi City.

Flach then contrasted these with the final 'abstracted' images he produced from them, and which appeared on advertisements and magazine covers — he explained how he had identified potential shots, many of which were based on the use of flash lighting techniques.

Many of the questions from students were constructive and very thoughtful, and Flach commented on the students' high standard of knowledge and ability in visual communication.
