M.J’s Birthday

At the end of August Micheal Jackon would have been 51, so Spike Lee threw a huge celebration in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. About 10,000 people turned up to dance, dress up in Jackson-centric costumes (ranging from Thriller Zombies, The Wiz, plenty of white gloves and trademark hats) and party all day. The kids were probably the most memorable, whose parents obviously went all out on them but they seemed to be very into it. A few of my faves (all shot on medium format film)..
