Celebrating the Australian cultural phenomenon of the shed and highlighting its historical importance, this project takes a direct view of the subject from the owner’s perspective.

All shed’s are labours of love. They capture an essence of the owner, their past, present and hopes for the future.Where men hide.

White's work explores the curious and intriguing world of the Australian Shed. Often referred to as ‘Man Caves’.

Most men aspire to have a place of their own, a bigger and better cave to tinker in. 

Some owners call them their church, haven or home from home. They provide a form of therapy, this asks us to look at the question of what the shed's purpose is beyond the practical?

The purpose of the project is to see how these spaces translate the character, stories and lives of their owners.

They are more than just sheds – they are a man’s cave.
