The Jackson 5 (sometimes stylized as the Jackson 5ive, also known as the Jacksons) are an American pop band composed of members of the Jackson family. The group was founded in 1964 in Gary, Indiana, and for most of their career consisted of brothers  Jackie,  Tito,  Jermaine,  Marlon  and Michael. They were managed by their father Joe Jackson.

The group were among the first African American performers to attain a crossover following.

The Jackson 5 performed in talent shows and clubs on the Chitlin' Circuit, then signed with Steeltown Records in 1967 and released two singles. In 1968, they left Steeltown Records and signed with Motown, where they were the first group to debut with four consecutive number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with the songs "I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", and "I'll Be There". They also achieved sixteen Top-40 singles on the chart. The group left Motown for Epic Records in early 1976, with the exception of Jermaine, who was replaced by youngest brother Randy. At Epic, they released four studio albums and one live album between 1976 and 1981, including the successful albums Destiny (1978) and Triumph (1980) and the singles "Enjoy Yourself", "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)", and "Can You Feel It".

The brothers also released solo albums, most successfully Michael. In 1983, Jermaine reunited with the band to perform on the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever TV special. They released the Victory album the following year, followed by an extensive tour which also featured songs from Michael's solo albums. After the Victory tour, Michael and Marlon left the group. The remaining four released the poorly received 2300 Jackson Street album in 1989 before being dropped from their label. In 2001, the Jacksons reunited on Michael's 30th Anniversary Celebration TV special. The four eldest of the brothers embarked on their Unity Tour in 2012 following Michael's death, and they planned several major performances for 2017.

According to some sources, the Jackson 5 have sold more than 100 million records worldwide. In 1980, the brothers were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as the Jacksons. They were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Two of the band's recordings ("ABC" and "I Want You Back") are among the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and, alongside "I'll Be There", were also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

This is the story of a son who discovered a number of boxes of old negatives in his parents' attic.

Thousands of original photos of the largest stars that roamed the planet.

Many of these photos have never been seen before. Not only because they have been in boxes for the past 25 years, but also because all images of the negatives have never been viewed before.

 

Rare and unique photos from international artists such as: Bruce Springsteen , The Jackson 5Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin , The Police , Diana Ross , Santana and Earth Wind & Fire but also by many Dutch artists such as: Herman Brood , Henny Vrienten and Golden Earring.

 

Kees de Jong is a Dutch photographer (born September 6, 1941) who started his career creating album covers for music artists. He created a number of close friendships with national and international artists, both behind and in front of the lens.

He took thousands of photos in different settings. Backstage and onstage during concerts or television performances, recording sessions in the studio, but also casual photos of artists who were themselves.

After his photography career , he worked for record company Sony Music (previously Artone and CBS) in their artist relations and promotional activities.

 

In early 2017, his son Mick de Jong started digitizing the original negatives and slides that were collecting dust without anyone knowing about their existence.

Where necessary, dust and any damage were retouched to restore the negatives to their former glory.

 

He wanted to share these unique photos with music lovers all over the world.
