"Yamasaki-San, your images have truly inspired me to go and capture the fleeting moments of life. You have the uncanny ability to capture and show us through your photos the intangible things that we cannot see, hear, feel or touch. Emotions are what I see: happiness, sadness, sorrow, joy, pain, fear and much more that words cannot describe. The combination of your captures and aesthetic burn deep into my psyche and that I am very grateful for. Your are a HUGE influence on my photography and life as well. A.R.I.G.A.T.O."

"Intensity and energy captured on silver and plastic - Bought to life by a unique photographer with a real eye for the world. The streets and the views in these pictures will let you see how vibrant and exciting every day scenes can be when viewed from the right angle. Yamasaki Ko-Ji carries the banner of great street photography into the 21st century, expressing himself through unique work that pays homage to the greats - But most important, he makes clear the fact that the feeling of the moment is what matters in photography, nothing else."

Gaël Turpo says:
"Photography is not a job, it's a way of life. When i've seen his work for the first time it was like a "revelation". Places, moments, visions, yes, photography is like poetry. But Yamasaki ko-ji is not Moriyama! He's different, he talks about his own life, with honestly. Life is beautiful, and very dark...that's life and the Yamasaki ko-Ji's work talk about life, our life."
