What’s more, we may soon see a limited edition Leica M rangefinder named after him.

Kravitz’s new photo book, titled “Flash,” is a hardcover book comprising 96 pages and 50 duotone photographs.

It’s a “thrilling collection [that] documents Kravtiz’s world tours, offering a rare record of the nomadic musical life,” the description says.

Here are some of the photographs found in the book:
