letter from the editor

CONTRIBUTORS 1. Peter Terzian AN AUTUMN SONATA (P. 86) T+L’s own features editor grew up an hour away from the Berkshires, but rarely visited as a child. In adulthood, though, he and his husband, author Caleb Crain, have fallen for this corner of Massachusetts. “There’s something gentle and accessible about the area,” Terzian says. “The landscape is beautiful but in a quiet, subdued way.” 2. Meredith Andrews STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE (P. 30) Bermuda-based Andrews already knew the subjects of her photographs for this story on young island creatives, some of whom are friends. But she was still able to explore less familiar areas of the small subtropical island. “It had been years since I traveled to Abbott’s Cliff,” she says. “It was great to return to such a lovely location and shoot my friend, influencer…

the next l.a. story

A GLOBETROTTER’S GUIDE TO THE LATEST IN TRAVEL IN THE 1930S AND 40S, much of the Tinseltown magic took place not in Hollywood, but eight miles to the south in Culver City. The area emerged as a filmmaking mecca on the strength of The Wizard of Oz, Citizen Kane, and other movies shot on its lots. The studio exodus in the 1960s and 70s left a void, and hotels and nightclubs formerly frequented by stars like John Wayne fell into disrepair. But in the past few years, the arrival of Apple and other tech companies has ushered in intriguing new spots that complement older standbys. Last fall, hip hotel brand Palisociety converted a former boardinghouse into the Palihotel Culver City (palisociety.com; doubles from $195), a 49-room boutique property with a buzzy lobby bar.…

where life imitates art

WHAT DO a casino at the base of Mont Blanc, in France, a symmetrical palace in Jaipur, India, and a post office in Wrangell, Alaska, have in common? They all recall the singular, eccentric aesthetic of Wes Anderson, the director of such travel-centric films as The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Darjeeling Limited. And they all have appeared on the popular Instagram account @AccidentallyWesAnderson, which was created by Wally Koval in 2017 to uncover whimsical Andersonesque locations around the world. Now Koval has partnered with members of his online community to release a crowdsourced coffee-table book, Accidentally Wes Anderson (Little, Brown and Co.; $35). The book, which comes out in November, highlights photos of more than 200 attractions, the majority of which have never been featured on the IG page;…

passport status

In 2007, Noah Webb traveled to Ecuador to shoot photographs for Monocle—his first professional assignment. He used both film and digital cameras to photograph the Indigenous activist Mónica Chuji, in Quito, then visited the coastal town of Salinas. When Webb returned home to L.A., he wanted something tangible to help him remember the career-defining experience. So he pasted thumbnails from his contact sheets into 30 pocket-size notebooks and shared them with his friends and colleagues. Their response was so positive that Webb decided to build upon the idea on subsequent trips: a ski getaway in Switzerland, a tourism-board gig in Seoul, an editorial project in Brasília. While Webb no longer shoots on film, he has continued to create “passport books” from his travels, each with 24 photos printed to the scale of the…

TRAVELERS’ TALES, FROM NEAR AND FAR REASONS FOR HOPE IN AMERICA LONG ISLAND—the snake-tongue sliver that juts out from the bottom of New York—is, as they say, a land of contrasts. On the western end, my end, you have the densely populated boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. In the middle, tight city blocks give way to lawns and suburban sprawl. Then, everything gradually thins out until you reach land’s end: two spindly peninsulas, separated by the five miles of Peconic Bay. The famous one is the so-called South Fork, home of the Hamptons. The other one is different. The North Fork has long been wilder, more isolated. While elsewhere on Long Island Olmsteds were planning urban oases and Whitman was writing about ample hills, it remained a land apart. Historically, those who have…
