Judith Puckett-Rinella is the founder and president of Whisper Editions. She began her career as a photography editor at distinguished magazines like BlackBook and Details, and later became the photography director at T: The New York Times Style Magazine and, most recently, Vanity Fair. In December of 2014, Whisper opened a brick-and-mortar store in the historic South Street Seaport coined “The Lodge.” The name reflects the store’s overall interior design: a spacious, wood-lined two floors designed and constructed by Puckett-Rinella with the help of the prolific set designer Megan Caponetto. The seventeen-foot, elk-antler sculpture hanging from the Lodge’s vaulted ceiling is the inspiration behind the Antler Candelabrums. Puckett-Rinella divides her time between curating and creating heirloom pieces for WhisperEditions.com, furnishing the Lodge with works from preeminent artists and artisans, and continuing to foster relationships with the stable of art photographers she has worked with so closely for many years.
