GLOUCESTER — Edward Hopper loved the houses here. The porches, the turrets, the mansard roofs, all offered ornate detail and complex shadow play. Even the simpler structures caught his eye.

Many of the houses Hopper painted when he summered in Gloucester in the 1920s are still here. Photographer Gail Albert Halaban has revisited them, photographing them from the same perspective from which Hopper painted them. “Hopper Redux, Photographs by Gail Albert Halaban,” now up at the Cape Ann Museum, looks at these homes, their inhabitants and their history, through a contemporary lens — although one clearly shaped by Hopper.

This exhibit is not, by any means, an Edward Hopper show. There is one drawing by Hopper on view. Otherwise, it’s all Halaban’s photographs.
