The style and aesthetics that characterize Wes Anderson‘s films, retro-inspired, with precise color schemes, are unmistakable.
But since life imitates art, people from all over the world have begun to raise their eyes on their paths and to evaluate buildings and places just in a “Wes Anderson” aesthetic perspective. That’s how Accidental Wes Anderson was born, a subreddit where people from all over the world share pictures of real-life places that could in effect be part of the locations in a movie by the director of The Grand Budapest Hotel. The shared pictures are of buildings and structures, mostly unconventional ones, but all with their vintage “allure“, that perfectly capture the spirit of Anderson’s unique aesthetic. Here are few examples of the daily growing submit.
