Pastel shades, facades and a disturbing symmetry: these are the aesthetic hallmarks of Wes Anderson’s films.
Locations that seem fake but which really exist and are collected on Instagram.
@accidentallywesanderson is a profile that collects shots of places around the world that seem to have come out of his films. In just a few months the account has gathered 155,000 fans and more than 200 photos from around the world that have been reported via the hashtag #AccidentallyWesAnderson and collected on the official website.
Wally Koval, the creator of the profile, told Vogue that he started using the photographs collected on Reddit but within a very short time many more images began to arrive, resulting in an officially recognized community involved by the director for sharing the artwork of the upcoming film @IsleOfDogsMovie!
To contribute you need to log on to the www.accidentallywesanderson.com site and send your own shots adding a small description explaining where the location actually is. Each photo must have a symmetrical composition, a palette of pastel colours and a touch of nostalgia – in other words, the typical ingredients of the plastic architecture in Wes Anderson’s films!
