Riassunto: The Michael Jacksons is an ethnographic monograph. With more than 55 photos - including 35 portraits of professional tribute artists and impersonators - and 100 pages of description and analysis of this fascinating and burgeoning subculture; this book cannot be missed by any fan of Michael Jackson or photo book enthusiast. Author Lorena Turner weaves narratives of many representers from the streets, back yards and garages of towns and cities around the US along with the cultural analysis of Greg Tate, Michael Eric Dyson, and other writers to help illuminate and contextualize Michael Jackson's place within the culture. Featured in CNN, Slate, The Daily Beast, ArtDaily, and Studio 360, The Michael Jacksons is a thoroughly researched and highly accessible read that bridges visual sociology, critical theory and documentary photography. It will most certainly be the most unique volume in your library.
