Lightning strikes. A new sound explodes - one deeply rooted in the rich soil of rock, rhythm and soul. A new artist emerges, exuding bombastic energy and unrestrained love. An original and charismatic performer takes the world by storm.
All this captured in a stunning photographic study of the emergence of an international star. Lenny Kravitz on stage: London, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Los Angeles. Lenny Kravitz off-stage, jamming with new fans like Mick Jagger, rehearsing with his bandmates, relaxing with family, laughing with friends. Lenny Kravitz sculpting his style, finding his voice, forging his look - adorned and unadorned, casual and outrageous, whimsical and wild.
An up-close and highly personal documentation of the birth of one of music's exciting and enduring creative forces. A panoramic visual landscape captured by photographer David Hindley who was given full access during the legendary tours, from 1989 through 1995, marked by the thrill of discovery.
