In mapping the expansion of urban space, work by Naoya Hatakeyama reveals the impact of industrial activity on the natural landscape. The photographs record building sites, architectural maquettes and extraction processes, drawing a striking portrait of globalisation and development across the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolis and beyond. A new publication by Aperture and the Minneapolis Institute of Art accompanies a current exhibition, which runs until 22 July.
