Patrick Hinely Photo in NY Times Magazine

Patrick Hinely's image of Fred Hersch's Steinway grand piano in his studio in 1995.

Two photographs by Washington and Lee photographer Patrick Hinely ’73 are featured in a slide show accompanying a feature story about jazz pianist Fred Hersch in the current issue of the New York Times Magazine. The article is titled “Giant Steps: The Survival of a Great Jazz Pianist,” and Patrick has two of the slide show’s seven images. You can see them here. Aside from his work for W&L, Patrick is internationally known for his photography of musicians and others involved in the creation and performance of jazz — images that he takes for Work/Play.

    I cannot imagine anyone whose photography skills and accomplishments are as varied and rich as Pat’s. Certainly, the Washington and Lee family takes pride in Pat Hinley’s achievement. The New York Times is tall cotton and so is Pat.

    No surprise – Patrick has an uncanny ability to capture a still photo of musicians making music that just doesn’t seem like still life… like melody, his photos linger in my mind.

    An excellent example of Patrick´s stunning work featuring musicians and jazz, in particular. Somehow he manages to evoke through his photographs the whole spectrum of emotions that the music provokes. Kudos to the New York Times for recognizing his work.
