In her latest editorial for T magazine, an extension of the New York Times, Anais Mali channels some fierce jungle fever as she poses around a tropical paradise. The editorial is titled 'Magical Realism,' referring to the contemporary artistic movement often associated with Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The movement focuses on combining reality with the fantastic in a way that seems unquestionably natural. The 'Magical Realism' editorial does just that.

Anais Mali is source of magic in this editorial as she gazes serenely yet forcefully at the camera, almost unaware that she is being photographed. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby is masterful in his ability to make a natural setting appear fantastical. The tropical foliage combined with soft lighting and Mali's ethereal expressions serves to make 'Magical Realism' truly otherworldly.
