Jim Britt had just signed as Motown's art director and photographer in 1972 when started shooting photos of Michael Jackson and his brothers. "I had a real nice rapport with Michael from the beginning," he says. "He was a good kid. So many people have tried to glean from me that maybe he was having an unhappy childhood, and there's no way in the world I ever saw that." Britt took tons of photos of Jackson throughout the 1970s.
