Austr alians have a love affair with rural sheds which stems from their utility\, compositional quirks and oddities and rustic charm.


49 sheds is an ongoing series of p hotographic images that document various rural sheds found dotted across th e vast landscape of Australia. Captured by Monash University lecturer and a rchitect\, Ross Brewin\, these sheds have been subjectively chosen during d rives through the country\, with the images aiming to capture the various o dd formal and material qualities of these humble structures. Recalling the work of the German photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher\, each shed is capt ured as a single frontal elevation in order to abstract its formal and mate rial composition and to create a consistent method of documentation.

\n< p class="style78 style106" style="text-align: justify\;">Displaying the pre sence and weathering effects of time\, the state of ruin of some of the she ds prompt consideration of what may have led to their abandonment and a sen se that the natural elements will eventually reclaim the human-made.
