A picture is worth a thousand words so the old adage goes, and judging by the quantity (and indeed quality) of photographs published in November on The 405 by our many photographers, we have ourselves a fucking Tolstoy here. Speaking of whom did you know that it was another Russian writer, Ivan Turgenev, that is sometimes credited as one of the originators of that phrase?[citation needed] As he said in Fathers and Sons in 1862 "A picture shows me at a glance what it takes dozens of pages of a book to expound."

Tenuous history lessons aside, cast your eyes on the images below - make sure to keep a careful eye on an incredible Crystal Castles show and an eerie How To Dress Well portrait.
