The Guide: November 2013 Edition

1 minute read

LightBox presents our monthly round-up of the best books, exhibitions and ways to experience photography beyond the web — from an exhibition of Eggleston’s cloud photographs at Gagosian and the new book PUNKS by Karen Knorr & Olivier Richon to Paolo Roversi’s “Secrets,” in Sweden and Laurent Chéhère’s “Flying Houses,” in New York.

‘The Guide’ on LightBox publishes monthly. If you have submissions or suggestions for upcoming round-ups of the best books and exhibitions, feel free to pass them along via email before November 15. We’ll also be updating this gallery throughout the month.
