A working man's shed is not just a place to store tools, it's his kingdom, and photographer Jasper White has superbly captured the individual portrait these backyard structures paint of their creators.
Filled with the various ephemera of their lives and interests, the practical spaces, also known as 'man caves,' are usually male-only sanctuaries, and in some cases, they act as an unofficial local bar.
On a recent trip to Australia, White noted the local males had a particular obsession with their sheds. The visit and his exploration of the phenomenon throughout the country resulted in the series 'Men's Sheds.'
'Each shed becomes an extreme focal point of human individuality in what could be described as the barren wasteland of rural Australia,' White explains. 'The shed frames an individual portrait of its creator, and this visual impact of the unusual and the unpretentious is what I find so interesting.'
