Batters, Elmer "Thigh Commissioner" (photographer)


Thigh Power (Vintage adult magazine, premiere issue, 1969)


Van Nuys, CA: Venice Publishing Corp., 1969. V1 N1, April 1969; B/W/Color throughout, 78pp, $2.50 cover price, 8.25 x 10.75 inches, saddle-stapled. Vintage adult magazine featuring imaginative photography of nude women, credited to Elmer Batters as "Thigh Commissioner" on copyright. Batters' prolific fetish photography of contour, nylon hosiery, simple yet elegant high-heeled shoes (even sneakers), was self-published for much of his career. During these years, before his work for Parliament News, set the standard for future photographers like Eric Kroll, Chas Krider. This series ran short, published just after his 14-issue crest of his career, "Thigh High," but still rampant is his progressive approach & multicultural themes.
