Susan White is returning to her old job at Vanity Fair as the magazine’s photography director. She had left the position last fall to take a job as executive director of editorial licensing at Trunk Archive, the photo syndication agency. In returning to Vanity Fair, she is replacing her replacement, Judith Puckett-Rinella, who has held the job of Vanity Fair‘s photography director only since December. She had previously been senior photo editor at T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
In announcing White’s return, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter said in a statement: “The depth and breadth of Susan’s knowledge, both of Vanity Fair and of the world of photography, are invaluable.” He added, “We’re so pleased she’s coming back to the magazine, not only for what she brings as a professional but also as a friend.” White first joined Vanity Fair in 1988.
White’s appointment as photography director is effective immediately.
