Alexander Binder’s affinity for the black metal aesthetic permeates his photos, but beyond being just fan worship, Binder’s work reflects how the the membrane between the kvlt and other areas of contemporary culture has become. Binder’s images have a dark and ethereally sinister quality about them, obfuscating reality rather than merely re-interpreting or altering it as other photographers often aim to do.
