Photographer #088: Peter Beste

Peter Beste, USA, 1978, spent seven years photographing an insulated and secretive community. He documented the world of Norwegian Black Metal. His photographs have been combined into the book True Norwegian Black Metal. For many years Beste also worked on a project in Houston, where he documented the outskirts of this city and the people living there, a community of "fiercely independent and often misrepresented individuals." The following images come from the series: Black Metal, Houston I and After Hours.
