"Accidental Wes Anderson" Subreddit Collects Real-Life Locales Fit for Anderson Films

The cinematography of Wes Anderson films is marked by symmetry, vibrant color schemes and a tinge of whimsy. Famously, every frame is a painting. Though Anderson’s sets are a combination of set design and location scouting, users of the subreddit “Accidental Wes Anderson” find places that capture the director’s style without a single added prop.

A good chunk of the photos come from Scandinavia, but most every hemisphere is represented on the feed. Each of the places look as if they could have housed a scene from The Grand Budapest Hotel or The Royal Tenenbaums.

Check out tweets with some of the subreddit’s best posts below, and explore it for yourself here.
