EXCLUSIVE While Santa Barbara killer Elliot Rodger “rotted in loneliness,” his father, Peter Rodger, was anything but unable to enjoy women.
Peter Rodger isn’t just the second assistant director on “The Hunger Games.” He is also a photographer. His specialty? Women’s backsides. Arses, as it were. (He’s British.)
Sexy? Oh yes.And strange considering Elliot’s frightening declaration to “slaughter” everyone like animals.
Peter Rodger is the son of George Rodger, the famed British war photographer who helped start the Magnum photo agency. George Rodger was legendary for photos he took in World War II including some at the final days of concentration camps like Bergen Belsen. He was a serious photo journalist and died in 1995.
Son Peter has another focus altogether. He sells his black and white art photos of women’s bums for $1,250 on the Saatchi Art website. These derrieres are seen at the Taj Mahal, near the Eiffel Tower, in a seedy New York hotel room, and so on. They are all artfully done.
It does seem a tad peculiar that while dad was busy shooting rear ends, the son was having severe emotional problems concerning women, sex, and intimacy. In his terrifying YouTube video, Elliot talks about being unloved, being a 22 year old virgin, hating women and sexually active men. He promises to kill all of them.
Tragically, he carried through on his promise. On Friday night in Santa Barbara, California, Elliott killed seven people including himself, and wounded seven others according to reports.
update Sept 3 2019: Even though this story was up for FIVE years, Google censored the dad’s pictures and the son’s video today. You’ll have to do your own sleuthing and find them elsewhere.
