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 Newsman showcases images from this collection, selected by longtime Miami Herald photographer Al Diaz. The displayed images, along with cameras, press passes, notebooks, and other artifacts, chronicle Chapman’s storied career.
