artist spotlight: peter beste

In regards to photographers, the homie Peter Beste is somewhat of a strange fig when you get right down to it.

Most cats tend to focus on subjects that are perceived to be glamorous or beautiful, while Mr. Beste focuses his attention on subjects that are sometimes misrepresented and misunderstood.

While his body of work can take you across the world, I'd like to give you a brief tour of Houston, Texas.

Whether it be a strip club in H-Town or a mosh pit at a black metal show, Beste's work revolves more around the subculture than the actual subject of the photo. In my opinion, this approach gives the viewers a deeper look inside the subject and tells more of a story.

They say "pictures are worth a thousand words", so I'll shut up and let them do their thing.

Below you will find a brief sampling of my favorite photos. Be sure to click the image view an enlarged version.

Understand that this is just a brief sampling of the homie's work. His documentation of the Norwegian black metal scene and Houston strip clubs are definitely a must see.
