Periphery is concerned with his fascination of the mundane and the non-obvious that are present in the outskirts of the Denver-metro area.  Where isolation and economic hardship are relevant throughout industrial areas and bordering suburbs.  The outskirts are where Terry finds the most culture and vibrant characters are tucked away. These places seem to be forgotten and overlooked.
