Phil Mello has been photographing on New Bedford’s waterfront for over 40 years. He started as an amateur, documenting the inner world of the fishing industry in which he worked. Phil knows these people and this place well, he is currently Plant Manager at Bergies Seafood, New Bedford, so his waterfront access is unencumbered.
His photography has become part of a major Library of Congress project to capture and preserve the faces of New Bedford’s fishing industry. The project will be available to the public soon, it focuses on local fishing industry workers and their jobs, each vital to the daily operations of supplying seafood to market.
All photographs were taken by Phillip Mello. You can find out more on New Bedford's Fishing Heritage Center's website at www.fishingheritagecenter.org. To see Phil Mello's other photography, visit his website http://www.philmellophotography.com

Our fine art printing process uses pigment based inks. Pigment printing processes have been utilized since the middle of the 19th century. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing. Pigment inks excel in permanence. A dye is molecularly soluble in its vehicle, but pigment is not. Pigment particles tend to be large enough to embed into the receiving substrate making them water-resistant. The particle nature of pigment inks ensures their archival superiority. A particle of pigment is less susceptible to destructive environmental elements than a dye molecule.
