Kravitz has been interested in cameras since childhood, and in recent years photographer friends of his have taught him the fundamentals of photography using a Leica M rangefinder. He is often seen with one by his side, the website said.
As a celebrity constantly under the watchful eye of paparazzi and the public, Kravitz uses his interest in photography as a way to turn the cameras back on the people photographing him, PetaPixel said.
“Flash” can be purchased on Amazon for $34.
Leica will reportedly be announcing a limited-edition Leica M 240 that’s named after Kravitz. It is said to feature a coated brass exterior as a tribute to the world of music, according to the website.
Kravitz, whose father was Jewish, has been photographed wearing a Star of David on many occasions.
