Photographer Sara Gray captures the remoteness, the quiet, the starkness of Dogtown, New England’s most famous abandoned settlement on Cape Ann, near Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Despite a sketchy past, the 3,600-acre site is still an attraction for history devotees, nature lovers, and artists and writers, perhaps because of that remoteness.

    “The Last Days of Dogtown” is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Read it several years ago, fictional account but a very absorbing story.
