Tell Us #4- Peter Beste is a New York City by way of Houston photographer. Having shot popular photo essays on Black Metal and Houston Rap, you’d think Beste would be all types of harsh. However, he’s as nice, soft spoken and approachable as they come. The latter in conjunction with his obvious photographic chops explains why Beste has been able to both permeate and photograph subcultures that are typically closed to outsiders let alone most photographers. However, not one to favor categorization, Beste recently published a photo series on Chemtrails that sees the photographer shooting manipulated skies. Beste was kind enough to take some time out of his day to participate in this week’s installment of Tell Us (where we ask peers about their current fixations). The Tourist (TT)- Some photographers whose work you’re currently into? Peter Beste (PB)- Rune Johansen, William Eggleston and Daido Moriyama. TT- What music are you currently listening to? PB- Kate Bush, K-Rino and Iron Maiden. TT- Books and/or publications you’re reading or just plain fond of? PB- Babylon’s Banksters by Joseph P Farrell and Occult America by Mitch Horowitz.
