Scene set for Accidentally Wes Anderson photography show on Hackney Road

Hackney Citizen, Nov 27, 2020

A local art gallery is raring to go as soon as the second lockdown ends next week, having secured an exclusive collaboration with Accidentally Wes Anderson (AWA), an Instagram feed dedicated to photographs from around the world that look like they could have been created by the virtuoso film director.


Anderson is known for his highly stylised, exquisitely crafted cinematography in films such as Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums.


The AWA feed, which boasts 1.3 million followers, was started in 2017 by New York-based author Wally Koval, who released a book in October – with a foreword from Anderson himself – featuring some of the account’s best submissions.


After reading about Koval’s successful pop-up show in Manhattan to mark the book’s release, Sim Takhar, founder of The Old Bank Vault gallery on Hackney Road, got in touch with him to offer her venue for a similar exhibition for Londoners.
