LOS ANGELES (KABC) — While millions around the world know Michael Jackson as the King of Pop, a local photographer was able to see a different side of the icon as his personal photographer for 30 years.
Harrison Funk watched as Jackson evolved from teen idol to a bona fide superstar. Jackson became known as a perfectionist whose personality was very complex.
“What genius isn’t complex?” Funk asked. “I would put him up there with Da Vinci and Michelangelo and Beethoven and Picasso.”
Funk was the man tasked with documenting the life of the legendary pop singer. Funk said Jackson would ask him every night if he had “made magic.”
“He couldn’t wait to see the pictures because he wanted to see the magic,” Funk recalled.
