Publishing house teNeues has announced the publication of Flash, a book with photographs taken by the rock star Lenny Kravitz, in February 2015.
With the new title, Kravitz makes his mark in a new arena of the creative arts. During his childhood, Kravitz was enthralled by cameras, playing with them like toys instead of taking photographs. In recent years photographer friends taught him the fundamentals of photography by using a Leica camera. Intrigued by the possibilities, Kravitz began creating his own works, featuring close attention to the nuances and effects created by light, Kravitz’s website said.

As he himself had been endlessly photographed by photographers, paparazzi, and fans, his perspective on aesthetics was decidedly unique. In Flash, he captures the essence of what it’s like to be a rock star who’s constantly in the public eye. The result: an intense exploration of the photographer and his subject, the website said.
The collection documents Kravitz’s world tours, offering a rare record of the nomadic musical life. Flash signals an exciting new chapter in the annals of rock photography, according to the website.
Kravitz is the son of a white Jewish father and a black non-Jewish mother.
