The Life of Michael Jackson

Photographer Harrison Funk was with Michael Jackson and his brothers during the Victory Tour. He was in the studio with Michael and Quincy Jones while when they laid down the tracks for 'Bad.' He watched the King of Pop hobnob with the likes of Diana Ross and Nelson Mandela. He was there for it all, and he has the photos to prove it.
As Jackson's personal photographer from 1983 to 1995 (he would work with him off and on for the next12 years), Funk had the great privilege of capturing the legendary performer's meteoric rise with his camera lens. Funk shared some of these photos with Black Voices -- many more can be found in the August issue of the Source -- and offered commentary on each one.
