“Sheds” is a very intriguing series by London-based photographer Jasper White. His pictures are currently part of the “Caves and Nests” exhibition at gallery nine5 in New York.

Jasper White uses Lambda print photography to offer a sociological study of men’s sheds in Western Victoria, Australia. While traveling in the region, White discovered an unusual oasis. Rather than gathering at a bar, the local men congregate in their own sheds, which act as a welcome respite after a long workday. It is here, drenched in machismo and memorabilia that men can meet with their friends in comfort and solidarity. Though, as White quickly discovered, no two sheds are alike. Through White’s photographs these spaces are revealed to be an allegorical picture of human individuality.

Elite.
