Elmer Batters

Elmer Batters (1919 – 1997) served aboard a submarine in World War II where he became aware that his sexual tastes were different from his shipmates. Following his discharge he married his first leg model, settled in Rancho Palas Verdes, and made a career photographing women with an emphasis on legs and feet. He created 18 original magazine titles, including Elmer’s Naked Jungle, The Sneaker World of Elmer Batters, and Legs That Dance to Elmer’s Tune, and is the subject of two TASCHEN books.
