architecture color photography aesthetic and utilitarian effect in the greater Los Angeles area by Sinziana Velicescu

Sinziana Velicescu On The Periphery

On The Periphery explores the aesthetic and utilitarian effect of architecture in and around the greater Los Angeles area. Minimalistic in nature and inspired by abstract expressionism and graphic design, the images represent a departure from the day to day realities of Los Angeles’s cluttered landscape.

The moments captured are fragments of a cityscape’s lifetime that are most often overlooked by an entire population concerned solely with reaching a destination. The result is an homage to ‘The City’, combined with a hidden desire to escape to another place or perhaps another time.

“On The Periphery,” is now available as a hardcover book, published by Aint-Bad.
