“The Cherry Biters capture the bite in mid-chomp, teeth tearing at the fleshy fruit, suspended in a macabre state of pre-demolition. The cherry, half-chewed is often unidentifiable. Lusciously rendered in vivid hues, the pictures are decadent, and unabashedly hedonistic, even somewhat lewd. But the subject is something more inclusive than lust. It is, rather, the totality of sensual pleasures involved in the experience: the visceral satisfaction of crushing something plump and firm in one’s teeth, the burst of flavor, the succulent juice, and finally, the satiation of hunger.”
