From Nora McGreevey’s article forSmithsonian Magazine:

Also included are 13 portraits of modern-day witches from photographer Frances F. Denny’s series Major Arcana: Portraits of Witches in America. Denny is a descendant of both Salem judge Samuel Sewall and Northampton resident Mary Bliss Parsons, who was accused of witchcraft but acquitted by a Boston court in 1675, reports the Times.

The artist spent three years photographing dozens of people who identify as witches, including those who practice as herbalists, tarot readers and medicine women.
