Influences: Henry Wolf
One of the legendary art directors of Harper's Bazaar.
Best known as the art director for Harpers Bazaar, Show, and Esquire, Wolf’s direction is described as Chic in typography, boldness in layout. Risqué cover photographs, and literary content defined a new American brand of strapping consumerism, lusting after cars, jazz, vacations, and gourmet food.
His concepts for the Bazaar and Show were to create a visual cover to express their complex context. He shot the covers either himself or collaborated with Richard Avedon, Melvin Sokolsky and Art Kane to name a few. He is an AIGA lifetime achievement honoree and a member of Art Directors Club hall of fame.
