DERIVE is about wandering.

I am Cody. I explore the world by night.

I will take you on an adventure through cities and places under the glow of neon and moonlight through photography and short stories.

DERIVE Wanderer Magazine is offset printed and shipped four times per year. Each edition explores the theme of the world's cities and places by night. The magazine is offset printed in A5 size, and usually has 28 pages or more as it grows. Individual copies of DERIVE Wanderer can be ordered directly via the DERIVE Store.

DERIVE has also published two nocturnal photobooks: Danchi Dreams, and Bangkok Phosphors.

Help us explore the world.
The keyword for DERIVE is journey. In 2019 we spent six months on the road photographing and exploring the world by night. In 2020 we want to dedicate a whole lot more time to writing, wandering, photobooks, and of course Wanderer magazine. This goal is what where we need to be for that to happen.
