From Lauren Poggi’s article and slideshow of photography by Frances F. Denny for The New York Times‘ T Magazine:

In her series “Let Virtue Be Your Guide,” the photographer Frances F. Denny explores the models of moral conduct she grew up with, in a family with a deep-rooted New England history. Guided by her female family members, Denny’s visual journey explores how women are perceived. Her images incorporate both her past and the present — and mix clashing patterns of muted hues with powerful portraits. Delicate and bright, the lighting has a magical quality that illuminates the beauty in the ordinary.
