KA Magazine loves Miami – especially more so now that we have collaborated with Artist and Photographer Natasha Kertes – who photographed IN BLOOM; the cover editorial for KA Magazine Vol. 6.  The story between model Anai Ekalino and Natasha Kertes stretches far beyond the mere shooting of an editorial spread. The Sudanese aspiring model and the Russian photographer met through a chance connection online and since then have created an unshakeable bond.

The two came together to also photograph the art project “AQUARIUS” in which Anai is punished by jealous Gods for her beauty to carry water for the rest of her life. The story is powerful and captivating – the images, timeless.

On June 9th and 10th, Natasha Kertes hosted the AQUARIUS Art Show at the TSL Lounge in Miami presented by KA MAGAZINE. The proceeds from the night were donated to Anai Ekalino’s Fund for Malaria in African children. The event was a large success, bringing together a group of art lovers in this memorable event which also featured an exotic drum show by Bash’s beats and a dance performance by Kikimora Studio.
