Véletlenül Wes Anderson – Így született meg a népszerű Instagram oldal

A Véletlenül Wes Anderson (Accidentally Wes Anderson) egy olyan Instagram oldal, amely Wes Anderson stílusában nyújt vizuális kalandot a követőknek. A lenyűgöző fényképek, melyek mind a valós életből származnak, pont úgy néznek ki, mint egy igazi Wes Anderson film helyszíne.

A pontos szimmetriával, pop-pasztell színekkel, élénk mintás tapétával és kifakult épületekkel ellátott képek, mind nagyon hasonlítanak a szeretett Wes Anderson filmek helyszíneihez. Az Instagram oldal alapítója Wally Koval pedig nemrégiben kiadott egy új könyvet is az oldal tiszteletére, amely az utóbbi három évet ünnepli és egy kis menekülést is adott nekünk a világjárvány idején.

For this book 📖 we worked with some incredible people. Some of them professional photographers, many simply fans of the craft simply snapping shots on their phones, but all of them amazing, creative individuals. 180 Adventurers from 50 different countries make up the 200+ locations in this first printed collection: “Accidentally Wes Anderson” • We are absolutely in awe of this group's talent, and their overwhelming positivity. What started as a personal travel bucket list, has come to include some of the most amazing people we could have ever imagined • Over the past two weeks the contributing photographers began receiving their advance copies of the book, and well, the response has been overwhelmingly, astronomically positive across the board. I think when we reached out 2+ years ago, some of them did not know exactly what we were putting together – and then again, neither were we. But it turned out to be 368 page, hard-bound, lay-flat, deep dive into the colorful, incredible stories we may never have known. • We heart them more than they know. Here are a few of their impressively creative virtual “Horray!”s for the book. We will be sharing more as they come along. Hope you enjoy 😊 • ❤️ W+A

Ha Te még nem ismered az @accidentallywesanderson Insta oldalt, akkor tudnod kell, hogy ez a rajongók által beküldött fényképek oldala, amelyhez bárki csatlakozhat. „Ha bárki olyan szerkezetet, kirakatot, szimmetrikus jelenetet lát, amely mozgatja a képzeletét, készítsen róla egy fényképet” – írja Wally és csapata a weboldalán.

Az egész projekt egyébként 2017-ben kezdődött, amikor a brooklyni székhelyű Wally és felesége, Amanda Instagram-fiókot indított, megosztva az elhagyott Belvédère Hotel képét a svájci Furka-hágón; három évvel , és több mint 1,2 millió követővel később az oldal népszerűsége az egekben van. A marketing háttérrel rendelkező Wally számára nem idegen a kreativitás, de ez a “véletlenül” Wes Anderson kaland egy újfajta nézőpontot adott Wallynak az építészet és a dizájn iránt. A rajongóknak pedig egy inspiráló fiókot, mely minden egyes képe lenyűgöző.

____________________ Geiranger – Hellesylt Ferry ⛴ Geiranger, Norway 🇳🇴 c.1971 • Enriched with sugar, butter, and cultured milk, the fluffy flat cakes known as ‘sveler’ – a thick Norwegian pancake – is a common staple among Norway’s ferries. First a brunch menu item and then popular among cross country skiers, sveler soon made its way to ferries traversing Norway’s fjords, including the Geiranger – Hellesylt Ferry • Those who ride Norway’s Geiranger – Hellesylt Ferry in the Western region of Møre og Romsdal are treated to breathtaking views of the Geiranger Fjord, an inlet surrounded by steep mountains and stunning waterfalls. Connecting the villages of Geiranger and Hellesylt, the Ferry covers 12 miles for a little over an hour • Since 1971, sveler have been served on ferries connecting the many towns and villages among the fjords. Resembling American pancakes, sveler are batter-based cakes usually eaten for afternoon coffee or as a snack between meals. They are typically served with toppings like butter, sugar, Norwegian brown cheese or with sour cream and jam. Baking soda or salt of hartshorn give the cake their signature flavor • Fifty years before the first svele pancake was served on the water, Norway’s first car ferry was constructed in 1921. The MS "Bilfærgen", which translates to “The Car Ferry”, was built in Nerhus shipyards at Ølve in Hardanger. Since then, Norway’s ferry services have transported thousands of locals and tourists alike throughout the country’s many fjords and islands along it coasts, often with a tasty svele pancake in hand • Know more?

____________________ North Yorkshire Moors Railway 🚃 Whitby, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 c.1836 • Before steam-powered engines propelled trains down rail lines at high speeds, many railways were designed to be used by horse-drawn carriages. Such was the origin of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR), a rail line opened in 1836 within England’s northeastern countryside • Serving the seaport of Whitby, the Railway first opened as Whitby and Pickering Railway. Designed by George Stephenson, it was created to open up trade routes to the inland region. “Navvies”, a common term for manual laborers, built the railway and their endeavors included cutting a 120-yard tunnel through Grosmont rock, building a rope incline system, and wading through marshland to lay out the rail line • During its first year of operation, the Railway carried 11,000 tons of stone and transported 6,000 passengers from the village of Grosmont to Whitby. In the early days, passengers could choose to pay one shilling to sit on the roof of a coach or three shillings to sit inside for the two and half hour ride • In 1845, the York and North Midland Railway acquired the NYMR and steam locomotives replaced the horse-drawn carriages. The company also added permanent train stations and enhanced the incline to include iron rope. The steam locomotives couldn’t access the incline, so an alternative route had to be created and remains in use today • The Railways Acts of 1921 spurred the reorganization of many rail lines in England. Over the next forty years, the NYMR operated under various ownership until 1965, when British Railways chairman Dr. Richard Beeching declared the line uneconomical. After its closure, the NYMR Preservation Society formed to purchase the line. In 1973, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway opened and now operates as a heritage railway • Know more?

The most fantastic part about having our NYC pop-up shop 🗽 is seeing the excitement from the Community IRL. Even as we were setting up people would pass and exclaim “Wait, they have a shop?!” or “Oh my god, I follow this account!” 🎉 • Every interaction with the thousands of you who have come through the doors over the past 6 days has been an absolute treat 🥰 We are very much looking forward to rounding out the weekend stamping & signing copies of the book 📚 and giving elbow “high fives” (Safety first!) • In the meantime we continue to provide a little taste of the amazing shots from within the pages of our first printed collection – this one comes to us from the ever amazing @JaimeKunstmann who is forever exploring the beautiful places of. Chile 🇨🇱 Every location in the book is accompanied by an interesting story. Some are longer & more in-depth, others short & sweet – like this one. Hope you enjoy ❤️ – – – Lifeguard Chair on Lake Llanquihue 🏊‍♂️ Fruitllar, Chile 🇨🇱 • “Frutillar, on the banks of Lake Llanquihue, the largest lake entirely within Chile, is home to a mere 15,000 residents yet holds the honor of being recognized, in 2017, as Chile’s first UNESCO Creative City of Music. The lakeside town boasts a performing arts center so phenomenal that it has placed Frutillar on the world’s cultural map and—evidently—inspired their lifeguards to abandon their posts and go catch a concerto.” • 📸: @jaimekunstmann • #AccidentallyWesAnderson​ ​#AWA #AccidentalWesAnderson​ ​#WesAnderson​ ​#VscoArchitecture​ #Archigram #Symmetrical #TravelCommunity #LakeLlanquihue #Fruitillar #Chile🇨🇱

TODAY IS THE DAY! 🥳 After 2.5 years of collaborating with 180 photographers, from 50 different countries, the book OFFICIALLY hits shelves in the U.S. TODAY! 🎉 To celebrate we couldn’t think of any better image than the Cover shot from the amazing @carlokuettel from Furka Pass in Switzerland 🇨🇭 • We will be sharing more awesomeness throughout the day, so expect excessive thanks because you guys – the AWA Community – are the reason this came to be. We heart the hell out of you and we could not be more humbled and flattered and grateful for each & every one of you ❤️ ACTUAL LINK IN BIO! (No more presale!! 🥰) #WereNotCryingYoureCrying • Hotel Belvédère Furka Pass, Switzerland c. 1882 • “Built in 1882, the Hotel Belvédère is cradled by a hair-pin turn in the Furka Pass, a road that winds in dramatic loops through Switzerland’s Alps. In its heyday, guestrooms overlooked icy stretches of the Rhône Glacier and a grotto carved into the blue-tinged ice.” • “In 1965, the hotel was featured in a memora- ble scene in the James Bond film Goldfinger. Bond, played by Sean Connery, drives through the Furka Pass in his silver Aston Martin while trailing the villain Goldfinger and his henchman Oddjob in a yellow and black Rolls-Royce.” • “As climate change has melted the Rhône Glacier, tourism to the area has diminished. In 2016 the hotel closed its doors. Visitors today look out over a glacier literally covered up in fleece blankets—an attempt to reduce the ongoing melt.” • #AccidentallyWesAnderson #Symmetrical #Archigram #AccidentalWesAnderson #WesAnderson #Pursuewhatislovely #ig_switzerland #Switzerlandwonderland #SwissAlps #VisitSwitzerland #FurkaPass #HotelBelvedere #Switzerland_vacations #Switzerland🇨🇭

Hey Adventurers 👋 NYC pop up continues today 🗽326 Bleecker St. 📍11a-7p ⏰ Come say hi 🤗 – – – Museu Arte Nova 🏫 Aveiro, Portugal 🇵🇹 c. 1909 • Distinguished by its curves, natural themes, and materials, the Art Nouveau style of architecture swept Europe in the early 20th century. From 1890 to 1910, the style dominated building design and facades throughout the continent, eventually finding its place in Portugal. The Museu Arte Nova in Aveiro celebrates this architectural style and its historic presence in the city • In Portugal, the popular style was known as Arte Nova, and the country’s wealthy bourgeois brought it to cities not only for its aesthetic beauty, but as a way to assert their social and economical influence. In the early 1900s, the style was most popular in Lisbon, Oporto, and Aveiro • Unique to Aveiro, many buildings feature tiles with Art Nouveau motifs — and this was the only Art Nouveau detail expressed in the building’s design. Since these titles were affordable and available to the general public, they were common in Portuguese construction. In Aveiro, the tiles also helped to waterproof buildings and enhance the use of adobe, or sun-dried clay bricks • By the onset of WW1, the style had exhausted its influence and was no longer as popular. Following in prominence was Art Deco, a style that emerged in France around 1925. A departure from Art Nouveau’s, embellished aesthetics, this style was distinguished by its bold geometric forms and bright colors. Yet, by the 1960s Art Nouveau reemerged in retrospect, when the MoMA hosted a major exhibition on the style • The Museu Arte Nova is housed in the Casa Major Pessoa, an Art Nouveau-style building built in 1909. The Museu’s exhibit includes a network of 28 Art Nouveau houses in Aveiro where guests can take a walking tour to witness each stunning facade in person • Know more?

____________________ The Scotsman Hotel Edinburgh, Scotland c. 2001 • Situated on Edinburgh’s North Bridge, The Scotsman Hotel prides itself on being known as a gateway between the old and new — and perhaps in more ways than one. Housed in the former office building of The Scotsman newspaper, the Hotel is reportedly haunted by former employees who have never left their post • In 1817, lawyer William Ritchie and customs official Charles Maclaren first launched The Scotsman out of disdain for the “unblushing subservience” of newspapers to Edinburgh’s establishment. In response, they committed to circulating a publication that evoked impartiality, firmness, and independence. After Scotland’s stamp tax was repealed in 1855, The Scotsman relaunched as a daily newspaper • After fifty years in publication, the newspaper moved into the building on the North Bridge. This was a smart move for the budding publication as the building’s access to Market Street provided a direct path to trains traveling in and out of Edinburgh Waverley railway station and papers could be transferred directly from the printing house located in the basement • In 2001, The Scotsman Hotel moved into the newspaper’s Edwardian-style office building. Soon the editorial offices on the middle floors were replaced by hotel rooms, and the trading rooms where buyers would barter for advertising space were transformed into the North Bridge Brasserie, the hotel’s bar • While the Hotel bridges the gap between Edinburgh’s Medieval Old Town and Georgian New Town, there still seem to be a few souls who would rather stay put right where they are. Rumor has it that the Hotel’s building is reportedly haunted by numerous ghosts, among them a printer and forger who used to work on the paper • Know more?

Highland Park has a legacy of local businesses, some of which have been community staples for decades” • “In 1947, Italian immigrant Mike Tenerelli established Advance Wood Shop, specializing in residential, commercial, and custom shelving and cabinetry. After running the business for roughly thirty years, Mike passed it on to his son Stan—who took over for thirty years himself. His son, Mike Tenerelli II, has been at the helm for the last decade. If tradition holds, Mike II has another twenty years before he passes it on to the next generation.” • “AccidentallyWesAnderson #Archigram #AccidentalWesAnderson #VscoTravel #VscoArchitecture #Pursuewhatislovely #DiscoverLA #LosAngeles #AccidentallyLA #HighlandPark
