It's been 17 years since Douglas Kirkland had exclusive access as the sole photojournalist at Michael Jackson's landmark ?Thriller? video. It wasn't until Jackson's death in June, 2009 that the photographer decided to finally share the wealth of material he originally shot for Life magazine in book form, due out this month as Michael Jackson: The Making of Thriller/4 Days/1983. We asked Kirkland about a few of his favorite shots, as well as what they revealed about the singer.
