We sent our photographer, Bob Hughes, on a mission: to photograph families at the festival.
We often hear from fishing families, “We’re a family, just like any other.” They have many of the same worries – how to get dinner on the table, how the kids are doing in school – and the same joys. So we’re so glad to share these snapshots of families in the warm September sun at the festival on New Bedford’s working docks.
Here are some of the families Bob captured. The rest are here!
