Celebrity photographer Kevin Lynch announced the debut of a new non-fungible token (NFT) collection, which will be based on his iconic photos of Kobe Bryant.

The NFT series has been named "Kobe in Motion" and is being hand-created by Farrah and Faris Kojok and their team at Miuzium, according to a press statement Wednesday. The series will include 200 pieces derived from the original "Kobe in Sequence" image, marking Lynch's entrance into the world of multi-piece NFT collections.

Interested NFT enthusiasts and collectors can sign in for the whitelist at Premint.

"I think people are going to be blown away by what Farrah and Faris Kojok have been able to do with my photos of Kobe," Lynch said. "The series is very kinetic, a sort of homage to the revolutionary motion studies done by Eadweard Muybridge in the nineteenth century." The series features 10 images of Bryant dribbling a basketball in a broad horizontal composition.

Each NFT will cost $3,000 and has been produced by hand, rather than through algorithms so that each piece is unique. "Kobe in Motion" has been developed on the Ethereum blockchain and the purchase of each blockchain-based token will get the buyer access to the future of the Kevin Lynch franchise.

"At turns graphic, glamorous, and graceful, Lynch's celebrity, fashion, advertising, and fine art images have appeared in museums and galleries throughout Europe and the United States, including Hamiltons Gallery in London and Christophe Van De Weghe Fine Arts Gallery in New York," said the statement.
