Item description for Ladies & Gentlemen by Antoni Muntadas...
Description: "Men's Room." "Women's Room." We see these signs everywhere, every day, so much that we take them for granted. New York-based photographer Antoni Muntadas, however, has taken photographs of these signs all over the world, and they are published in Ladies & Gentlemen. As we turn page after page of these signs: signs in different languages, signs with different graphics, we are not only amused, but we realize that these symbols have been transformed into gender symbols that refer to a universally accepted gender division. Virtually without text, this volume simply presents the images for what they are: signifiers of public spaces that exist for a private function.
