Meet the couple that travels around world creating stunning photos with architecture

Straight out of a Wes Anderson film

If you needed another reason to stare at your phone longingly, then this duo’s whimsical photography project might just be it.

Based in Valencia, Spain, illustrator Anna Devis and architect (and storyteller, as he declares on his website) Daniel Rueda travel the world to find architecture that can be used as a prop in their quirky photographs.

 

“It is not enough to just have an image that looks beautiful,” Ruede told More with Less, “It has to tell something without the need of putting it into words.”

 

#Today, while @anniset and I were looking for the perfect spot to shoot a #WHPISeeFaces entry we discovered that @EsOlympus is giving away a trip to Barcelona in order to attend to the #PlaygroundOpening. You just need to play with perspective and tag them in your picture and you’ll be coming with us! If that doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will! – Hoy, mientras @anniset y yo andábamos en busca del sitio perfecto para participar en el #WHPISeeFaces nos hemos enterado de que #EsOlympus ha organizado un concurso para ir a la inauguración del #PerspectivePlayground! Tan sólo tienes que jugar con la perspectiva, mencionarles y etiquetar con #PlaygroundOpening tu foto para venirte con nosotros, así de fácil. ¡Se nos ha puesto una sonrisa de ventana a ventana!

The couple spins stories around the architecture they come across and feature themselves as characters in the tale.

The result is a series of photographs that use perspective, colours and shadows and make it so hard to look away.
