Hmm nice!

L'Institut Valencià d'Art Modern (IVAM) in Valencia is showing 66 photographs and 27 fetish magazine covers made between 50s and 80s by the American photographer Elmer Batters.

Elmer Batters had his debut as a photographer at the end of the Forties in adult magazines. Many of his photographs are of women's legs clad in stockings. His photographs were censored at the time and therefore only available to private collectors. In these more liberated times his work is hailed as having artistic as well as voyeuristic merit.

The exhibition runs until the 2nd of March in "la sala La Muralla at the Institute.
