For forty years, photojournalist Tim Chapman documented the history of South Florida and beyond. His career with the Miami Herald began in 1972, ended in 2012, and included coverage of The Jonestown Massacre, the Mariel Boatlift, the Cocaine Cowboys era, and Hurricane Andrew, among other local and international events. In 2013, Chapman donated his life’s work to HistoryMiami Museum, and Newsmanshowcases images from this collection, selected by longtime Miami Heraldphotographer Al Diaz. The displayed images, along with cameras, press passes, notebooks, and other artifacts, chronicle Chapman’s storied career.
Newsman is organized by the HistoryMiami Center for Photography, a division of the museum that collects, safeguards, and shares the photographic images that tell the stories of our community and illuminate the Miami experience.
