Join us (virtually!) on Thursday, April 9th for an illustrated talk by photographer Phil Mello. Phil has worked on the New Bedford waterfront for 40+ years and has been taking photographs of waterfront fellow workers since 1975. As an insider with direct knowledge of the fishing industry, he has access to what is often a closed community. Phil will share photos and stories about the working waterfront.
