Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race, and class into a 25-year musical career — one which revels in the rich influences of ’60s and ’70s soul, rock, and funk. His talents as a writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist have resonated through nine studio albums into a timeless catalog. Having sold over 38 million albums worldwide, Lenny Kravitz’s musical success has afforded him many opportunities to fulfill his creative vision beyond the recording industry, as an actor, designer and photographer.
Already an avid art collector, Kravitz started collecting master photographs and cameras over a decade ago, feeling a particularly strong bond to the Leica brand.
Kravitz has been deeply interested in photography since he was a child. Being the subject of thousands of photographs himself, he decided to turn the camera on others, including the paparazzi who have followed him around for a quarter of a century. FLASH is the result of this reversal of roles.
