Men and their Sheds

by Craig Wetjen

Hardback Publication Date: 01/08/2016

RRP  $45.00 $36.16

Intricate and illuminating, the photographs in this book showcase the very private relationship between a man and his shed - a place to shelter not just from the rain but also from the ups and downs of daily life.

The shed is as much a mental release as it is a physical one. Photographer Craig Wetjen travelled thousands of kilometres to find his subjects and discovered that as well as being places for tinkering and repurposing, and occasionally housing priceless vintage car or pinball machine collections, some of the sheds are museum pieces in their own right.

A photographer for 30 years, Craig Wetjen battled his own physical and mental health issues as he travelled the Australian countryside photographing and documenting men and their sheds. A series of gallery exhibitions has accompanied the books journey. A TV series Manspace featuring the sheds in this book hosted by Shane Jacobson and aired on GO.

Craig Wetjen is an Ambassador for Beyond Blue, and one of his portraits features Jeff Kennett in his own shed - Jeff also wrote the Foreword. A percentage of all the royalties will go to Mens Shed Association.
