MANIFESTo

 

How many times have you walked around town, on your way to work, to school, back home. How many times have you gone to the library, to catch a train, to the neighborhood market. How many tours around the city could you travel with your eyes closed?
How many faces do you see every day?

Set out to explore your surroundings. 
Wander the usual path.
Notice the little things, find the invisible.

Enjoy the walk.

 

About DerivA

 

 

Deriva is a print magazine and community. We are a guide to urban wandering, stemming from the idea of exploring a city through the senses – focusing on the route you want to take, as well as how you want to feel along the way. Each issue is dedicated to one city, portrayed through stories, essays, and neighborhood walks.

ISSUE ONE – 41.3833° N, 2.1833° E

 

In our first issue, we have set out to explore four neighborhoods in one city. To focus on the basics of the walking experience – looking intentionally at things we would otherwise find ordinary. We call it “exploring the invisible”.

 

 

Issue One consists of 135 pages  filled with original
content: Photographs, illustrations, and words by 15
contributors on a fine quality print finish.
Proudly printed in Stockholm, Sweden.
