# Gravitational lensing redshift around a Kerr black hole

Light from a source passes by a Kerr black hole on two sides at the equator and converges at the observer. The axis of rotation of the black hole is perpendicular to the direction of light. Two rays of light pass through the spacetime regions of a significant frame dragging, on one side along and on the other side against the direction of light.

Would frame dragging cause a red shift of one ray and a blue shift of the other? Or would both rays come to the observer with the same frequency?

Kerr metric is stationary and has a Killing vector field $$\xi_t=\partial _t$$, time-like outside of the black hole, representing stationarity. This means that the quantity: $$E = g_{\mu\nu }\xi^\mu_t p ^\nu ,$$ where $$p^\mu$$ is 4-momentum (of, say, a photon), is conserved along the geodesics.
