Gasya Akhmetov-Atherton

Cirque du SoleilNew York City, New YorkPhotos & Story by Lauri LevenfeldStyling by Katja O’Brien

Sometimes we all feel like life is one big circus, with us as the clowns juggling our everyday tasks, passions, and family within. But for Gasya Akhemtova-Atherton and her husband Andrew, life really is a circus (of the Cirque du Soleil kind) where love and family evoke passion and inspiration and vice versa. For the Atherton family, spending less time “juggling” and more time

“merging” their loves, life, and work have truly become their highest form of art and expression. This is a story about a mother, wife and visionary who dedicates every day to living out her dreams and the dreams of her family. I guarantee these images are most worthy of a long double-take.
