On The Periphery explores the aesthetic and utilitarian effect of architecture in and around the greater Los Angeles area. Minimalist in nature, the images represent a departure from the day to day realities of Los Angelesʼ cluttered landscape. The moments captured are fragments of a cityscapeʼs lifetime that are most often overlooked by an entire population concerned solely with reaching a destination. The result is a homage to ‘The City,ʼ combined with a hidden desire to escape to another place or perhaps another time. Velicescu explains:
To me, photography is a form of meditation that helps me cope with an otherwise extremely stressful lifestyle bound by deadlines and traffic. I am also a strong believer in chance encounters and I see the city as a living specimen: some days are better than others, some streets are better than others.
