Man in the Mirror

This is the original MJ.

Jackson in the Bad era

Again, the man everybody loved, before the days when only almost-everybody loved him.

Man in the Mirror, circa 1980s

MJ sees himself in the mirror—and likes what he sees.

The latter day disguise

He never stopped going out in his classic aviator glasses, but here he's also hiding his face behind a surgical mask.

Avoiding the camera

MJ was photographed in 2009 without the surgical mask he'd taken to wearing, and it appears that he was hiding something illness-related that happened to his face.
