‘Seething, pounding, pulsing, the stifling bustle of “Calcutta.” More than anything, destitution means abandonment by sensual. For that reason, these pictures are abundant but not indulgent. Yamauchi particularly does not divide human beings according to ethnicity. Vividly capturing them “alive,” propelled by their spirit and emotion, for him to query their nationality would be irrelevant. This incites wonderment, prior to any this and that about foreign lands, of his sympathy and imagination towards any kind of “heterogeneous presence.”‘ — Chikage Ohmi, ‘Yamauchi Michio’ in Calcutta
