This book explores the curious and intriguing world of the Australian Shed. Often referred to as ‘Man Caves’. All sheds are labours of love. They capture an essence of the owner, their past, present and hopes for the future. This series of photographs opens the tin roof and allows us to look into these men’s havens. Celebrating the Australian cultural phenomenon of the shed and highlighting its historical importance, the book takes a direct view of the subject from the owner’s perspective. Most men aspire to have a place of their own, a bigger and better cave to tinker in.

About the Publisher
Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission was to create a ‘museum without walls’ and to make accessible to a large reading public the world of art and the research of top scholars. To reflect its international outlook the name for the company linked the rivers flowing through London and New York, represented in its logo by two dolphins symbolizing friendship and intelligence, one facing east, one west, suggesting a connection between the Old World and the New. Today, still an independent, family-owned company, Thames & Hudson is one of the world’s leading publishers of illustrated books with over 2,000 titles in print. They publish high-quality books across ‎all areas of visual creativity: the arts (fine, applied, decorative, performing), architecture, design, photography, fashion, film and music, and also archaeology, history and popular culture.
