GLOUCESTER, CAPE ANN, NEW ENGLAND

Gloucester, Cape Ann, New England

These pictures were taken on a visit to Gloucester, New England in 2018. It’s America’s oldest fishing port, and is is still very much a working town, rather than a place tourists visit.

Whilst I was there I discovered that Edward Hopper had visited the town in the 1920s, and one of the paintings he did there, mansard Roofs, launched his career at the age of 40.

I can understand why he came. The light from the sea is beguiling and the up and down streets mean that the houses are often lit in a very geometric way.
