Long-time contributing photographer Sara Gray spent the winter of 2013 photographing the classic New England barn for our print pages, but striking images weren’t the only thing her lens captured. From the caretakers who work tirelessly to preserve these iconic structures to the animals who find shelter within them, the 4 barns in New Gloucester, Maine that she focused on all have tales to tell. These striking Maine barn photographs each convey a story that continues to evolve.

    I am passionate about farms! You have captured many beautiful, rustic photos! I would love to see some of your photos during the other 3 seasons! Let me know if you have and how can I see them. Thanks Alan

    Very nice photos. I’ve just completed a three-year project which I presented in a self-published book Pennsylvania Barn Stories. You can review the entire book at http://www.blurb.com. Even though the book is available, I have not stopped photographing barns. I suspect I will be photographing barns until the end.
