Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has named Judith Puckett-Rinella as Photography Director of the magazine, effective January 3, publisher Conde Nast announced this morning. Puckett-Rinella replaces Susan White, who left the magazine several months ago to become executive director of licensing for Trunk Archive.
Carter praised Puckett-Rinella in a statement issued by Conde Nast for for having “the right combination of experience in photojournalism and classic portraiture” and he added, “besides that, she’s just a fabulous human being.”
Puckett-Rinella joins Vanity Fair from the The New York Times Style Magazine, where she has been a senior photography editor since 2005. Last spring, she told PDN in an interview how she sources photography. For more information, see People on the Move.
