PostRuth Ansel



Every decade has a few magazines that seem to reflect its cultural essence. During the experimental ’60s, Harper’s Bazaar redefined the fashion magazine. In the unsettled ’70s, The New York Times Magazine brought the rough and tumble world of the Nixon era into focus. And in the opulent ’80s, Vanity Fair pioneered the glamorization of the media. It just so happens that one woman, Ruth Ansel, was the art director for each of these magazines in its heyday.

Over the years, Ruth has worked with many of the great magazine imagemakers — from Irving Penn to Bruce Weber. She has designed books for Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon, and has overseen ad campaigns for Versace, Club Monaco, and many others. And yet, in spite of her stature in the world of graphic design, Ruth is startlingly understated when assessing her own work and its impact on culture.

Last month, photographer and friend Leeta Harding visited Ruth Ansel at her Upper West Side apartment, where she lives surrounded by her favorite photographs and bound volumes of some of the most arresting magazines of the past forty years.
