One for the podiatrist in all of us. This retrospective catalogue compiles decades of fetishistic photography produced by the undervalued artist Elmer Batters. The Milwaukee-native first gained prominence in the late 1940s after his work began appearing in adult magazines and became known for its preoccupation with the female foot. Whether well-heeled, manicured, booted or bare.
This book, a corresponding monograph for an exhibition at Spain’s Institut Valencià d’Art Modern, includes colour and black-and-white reproductions as well as several short essays.
