Linen-bound hardcover. De-bossed with tip-in image on front cover, edition of 500, hand numbered.

Sakura Lust is the first monograph by Casper Kent.

Shot over the course of a year – from the arrival of the first cherry blossom through the Japanese Autumn – during nights spent in ryokans and love hotels throughout Japan.

Echoing the Japanese adoration for Hanami (The annual tradition of welcoming the briefly blossoming Sakura, enjoying that moment and celebrating all it represents) the intimacy captured in Sakura Lust floats somewhere between an erotic dream and reality.

The book serves as a lust story, an attempt to seize a fleeting moment in life and make it last indefinitely.
