This book is inspiring. It helps communicate why Michelangelo is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. I am amazed that he sculpted it when he was 24 years old. Wow.

This story will help describe what I think about this book. I went backpacking through Europe in 1990 for 3 months on a budget of about $15 a day. I was so inspired by this book that I almost purchased it, even though it would have reduced the length of my trip by a day, and I would have had to carry it around for 2 months. Instead, I listened to my Walkman and paged through the book for about 45 minutes before leaving. I regretted not purchasing the book for the rest of my trip. In 2009, I returned to Rome with my wife for our first anniversary and went to one of the Vatican Museums specifically to see if this book still existed. It is the only trinket I purchased on our 2 week trip. It cost 15 Euros (about $20).

The story goes that Hupka was so smitten with Michaelangelo's Pieta that was on display at the New York World's Fair in 1964, that he spent over a year photographing it. Because of personal connections, he was able to get closer to the statue than the general public. He took 1000's of pictures from every conceivable angle, in all types of lighting, using color and black and white film. This selection of those photographs was originally published in 1973 and has sold about 100,000 copies world-wide.
I FOUND THE PICTURE QUALITY TO BE WHOLLY UNACCEPTABLE. The pictures in the book are very poorly lit. I would hope that is because of the printing technology that existed in 1973, but a lot of the photographs exhibit very poor lighting decisions, too. Specifically, there is a lot of glare and reflection in many of the images.
Yes, I know, he is taking pictures on white marble--how could there not be glare? But any seasoned photographer could set up lighting that would reduce the glare if not eliminate it altogether. SADLY, I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PURCHASE.
