Efrain Duenas has one of the best canvases a photographer could ask for: New York City. The man behind Ezzy's Photography totes his camera around the bustling metropolis, capturing weddings, families, cultural events, and Fashion Week with the eye of a photojournalist and the passion of an artist. He also finds time to venture out of the concrete jungle to the lush backdrop of the Galapagos Islands. There, he snaps photos of endangered species and plants for The Galapagos Project, which will culminate in a coffee table book of images. The project aims to help raise awareness about the dangers of pollution on one of the Earth's most inimitable and fragile ecosystems.
