some ofmy favorite live performances

“I already owned a mirror rig that allowed me to adjust eight mirrors individually. And, of course, before Michael arrived, the mirrors and lighting were completely prepared on the set. To give Michael more flexibility - and to add a little fun - I gave him what was essentially a stripper’s pole on a white Plexi stage. When he arrived on the set, Michael spent two or three minutes stretching and then started dancing in front of the mirrors to ‘Billie Jean’, which we played over the studio stereo system.
Because of the set-up and the preparation, it was hard not to get some magical shots in almost every frame during the roughly 30 minutes he danced in front of the camera. This was Michael Jackson dancing, after all. How could you go wrong?” — Albert Watson
- “Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.”
