Click to preview La Isla del Encanto Photographs by Clare Gardner photo book

My very heart friend, Ted Kirk, is celebrating his 2 year sobriety anniversary on 7/7, which makes his sobriety anniversary 7/7/07. I have visited him 2 times since he moved back down to his heartland -- Puerto Rico. Although he grew up in a very white, small town in upstate New York, Ted has Spanish and the Latino culture in his blood and fits there.

I created this book for him as he truly loves the Island, but has never really put together an album of his chosen home.

I am so proud of my friend for his pure strength, his belief in himself and his faith in his Higher Power. Would that everyone were as straightforward, open and insightful as Ted.


About the Author

Clare Gardner
diazocat13 Minneapolis, MN, USA

I developed an interest in photography at a young age. Starting on a plastic camera with a cube flash, I upgraded to the classic Kodak Disc and finally inherited my mother's lovely old Minolta SLR workhorse.

After college, I attended the Maine Film & Photographic Workshops. In 1996, I moved to New York City.

As a freelance photographer in NYC, my clients included Halston, Bear USA and Weatherproof. In partnership with Joseph Cartright, I tested some of the first professional DSLRs and medium format digital backs.

Moving to Minneapolis reignited my love of photography. Whether working on corporate headshots, fashion, still lifes or portraits, I bring creativity and passion to every project. My clients enjoy a memorable experience on the day, as well as a beautiful and professional end product.
