19 Sep Elmer Batters, pioneering foot fetish photographer

 

 

The work of fetish photographer Elmer Batters was considered aberrant back in the 1960s. He was actually arrested for pictures he took for his leg and foot-centric fetish photography in his magazines Man’s Favorite Pastime and Black Silk Stockings on the charge of “obscenity.”

When Batters was getting his start in the 1950s he helped lead the charge to draw admirers of feet and legs to a larger audience. A foot fetishist in the 1950s was still viewed as a creepy sexual fetish.
