A Desperate Journey

The Historical Museum of Southern Florida unveils a new exhibition tonight by Miami Herald photographer Al Diaz titled “Balseros – A Desperate Journey.”

The exhibit is a collection of photographs taken by Diaz during his tenure as a Herald photographer since 1983. Tonight is the opening gala by reservation, but the exhibit runs from tomorrow until June 4th.

I have seen some of these shots by Diaz and can tell you they are heartbreaking and well worth a trip to downtown Miami to take in.

  1. The small museum I visited outside Cayo Hueso was more than enough for me. Pictures are excellent but seeing those 3×5 cards posted in a room were too much. It is a must-see for anybody who knows little about the balseros. I’ve lived in California for more than 40 years and this museum was very special.
