Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Excavating the Future City: Photographs by Naoya Hatakeyama” is on view at Minneapolis Institute of Art through Sunday, July 22. The solo exhibition, the artist’s first at a museum in the United States, draws from throughout the photographer’s 30-year career, presenting over 100 works, which “uses photography to explore the growth and decline of cities in Japan, tracing the way human intervention transforms nature into the built environment, and its evolution over time,” according to a press release.
