The Pioneer Fetish Photos of Elmer Batters

Elmer Batters

Elmer Batters is widely considered a pioneer of fetish photography, and is considered one of the photographers who first popularized the foot fetish. His work was erotic with a focus on stockinged legs and feet, and in the late 1950s he self-published in magazines like Leg-O-Rama, Sheer Delight and Black Silk Stockings. Batters career saw its most success in the 1960s and 1970s, when, after he discontinued his self-publishing, he became the house photographer for several fetish magazines. He died in 1997, after his work saw a resurgence in the 1980s and 1990s, and was subsequently published in a series of three books via Taschen Books. Check out some of Batters’ most popular shots below…you can download e-book versions of some of his magazines and others he contributed to here.
