Photographs of the Month, November 2017

Updated: 1 December 2017
This month, our team of local and travelling photographers found themselves in all four corners of the Earth, capturing everything from the ghats of India to cargo-ship stowaways. Through their work, our readers have come even closer to the action, with the chance to savour moments that words couldn’t come close to describing. Check out the best of November below.
