Ivan Wong is one of the 10 Alpha Collective members who went on #AICdoesJapan, exploring the streets of Tokyo and Kyoto. His Instagram account is a mixture of magical portraits and city shots that could honestly be from the future. The shot below he took on his first day of the trip in the landmark alleyway of Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho. He was able to capture it using his Sony α7R III and 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master lens. Check out his account for more great shots from the trip!
