“Wow, this looks like a shot from Wes Anderson’s film!” How many times have you found yourself thinking like that while in front of a delightfully colored façade, perfectly symmetrical scenery, or a grandiose interior? So, what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and shoot it!
And then, of course, share that delicious eye-candy with the world by submitting your shot to the Accidentally Wes Anderson.
And wait for it to show up on the Accidentally Wes Anderson Instagram profile.
Okay, so what is this all about?
It is about the world of cinematic style images, symmetry, pastel palettes, meticulous decoration, retro looks, and peculiar visual patterns.
If Wes Anderson is your favorite filmmaker and you simply love The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Isle of Dogs, and other movies, you will definitely understand what we are talking about.
If you set your eye on just a few of Anderson’s movies scenes, you would also know what this is about.
If you visited Bar Luce in Milan, Italy, with interiors designed by Mr. Anderson himself, you would probably have a hunch on what we are saying here.
And if you haven’t witnessed any of that, well, get ready to be amazed by Andersonian aesthetics.
This story begins with the Reddit thread named Accidental Wes Anderson, where Anderson’s fans shared real-life photos inspiried by his movies.
From that point, Wally Koval took the initiative to create Accidentally Wes Anderson Instagram profile. As travel and architectural design enthusiast, Koval brought the idea of simply sharing photographs to the higher level. He started digging deeper for every picture and bringing up the original stories about captured places, buildings, interiors, and unique real-life settings.
As Wally Koval started getting thousands of submissions and growing a large community of Anderson’s fans, photography lovers, and wanderlusts, his fiancé Amanda has entered the scene to help him run the profile and manage the community of 600,000 followers.
Everyone can submit a photograph to be posted on this popular Instagram profile.
So, next time you go out for a walk, keep your eyes wide open. Andersonian beauty is everywhere around us.
