In the summer of 2017, Amanda and Wally Koval launched an Instagram account, Accidentally Wes Anderson (@accidentallywesanderson), to “explore the unique, the symmetrical, the atypical, and the distinctive design and amazing architecture that inspires us all.” In their digital space the Kovals shared the most beautiful, idiosyncratic, and interesting destinations on the planet, and did so in the unique cinematic style of one of the most recognizable modern film directors, Wes Anderson.

After posting photos that captured the vibrant colors of and mimicked the symmetrical framing of scenes from films like Isle of Dogs (2018), Rushmore (1998), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), the Accidentally Wes Anderson account commanded the attention of those who felt drawn toward the director’s defining aesthetic. Today, Accidentally Wes Anderson has built a community of well over a million people and has published a gorgeous coffeetable book.

The Kovals have since enjoyed countless adventures exploring new cities and towns looking for the best in architecture, culture, recreation — and of course, dogs. When they come home to their small apartment in Brooklyn, New York, they enjoy spending time with their dog, Dexter, who has incidentally become the face of the Accidently Wes Anderson account, seeing how the Kovals prefer to stay behind the lens.
