Lenny Kravitz Discusses Art Basel Miami Beach Installation ‘Flash'

Musician, actor and all-around talent Lenny Kravitz doesn't like to be boxed in by artforms, and his latest photography installation at Art Basel Miami Beach proves just that.

Speaking exclusively to NBC 6's Trina Robinson, Kravitz says his photography project "Flash" is simply another form of expression.

The photographs put Kravitz behind the lens, turning the camera onto paparazzi and fans as they chase him down.

"As an artist, you have to take what comes to you organically so I began to shoot back at them and it became this sort of dance," Kravitz says.

He says that once the photographs are developed and he sees the eyes, faces and expressions of his subjects, he can finally "take in the soul of that moment."

Kravitz tells NBC 6 that Miami is a place near and dear to his heart, and that it only made sense to debut his photos here.

"This is where my Bahamian relatives came and settled," Kravitz says. "I've been coming here since I was born."

"Flash" is open to the public through Sunday, Dec. 6 from 11 a.m. through 8 p.m. at the Ligne Roset Gallery, located at 160 Northeast 40th Street in Miami's Design District.
