Tomorrow August 29th would be Michael Jackson's birthday.  They are having a celebration in Gary, IN [1] where he grew up as a kid.  I was with the always mad photographer Jez Coulson [2] shooting photos in the area and we decided to check out his childhood home.  Surprisingly Michael Jackson grew up in a very small humble home.  Shortly after we arrived Michael Jackson's father Joe Jackson [3] showed up to pay his respects and view Michael's childhood home.  This photo was a one way sign outside the home signed by many people and their street was named in honor of the Jackson Family.
