What’s going on in the Harper’s Bazaar photo department? Photography and bookings director Olga Liriano, known for her work with Bruce Weber and Peter Lindbergh, among others, is heading out the door after less than two years and without another job lined up. Her departure comes two months after photo editor Jodi Nakatsuka left, also “to pursue other opportunities,” in the preferred public relations parlance. A spokeswoman for the magazine said Tuesday afternoon that Zoe Bruns, photography director at Teen Vogue since 2005, would take on both photography and bookings at Bazaar starting Aug. 11, and that Andrea Volbrecht, formerly of Marie Claire, had begun as photo editor on June 9. But things changed again only hours later — Volbrecht quit Tuesday to take up a freelance assignment at Marie Claire, according to the spokeswoman, who attributed the move to Bruns’ “assembling her own team at Bazaar.” Sources said that at least one more departure is imminent. Go team.
