Transman is an extraordinary document of a rarely seen subject - the female to male transgender. Dreyfus collaborated with her subject to photograph his gender transition from female to male in a compelling and extraordinarily intimate way. Transman was exhibited at Stills Gallery, Sydney in 2001, Nexus Gallery, Adelaide in 2001 and Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery in 2004. The exhibition was an official event of the Sydney Gay+Lesbian Mardi Gras, and the Feast Festival, in Adelaide in 2001.

Selected works from Transman were selected for the exhibition Cheveux Cheris - Frivolite et Trophees at the Musee du quai Branly in Paris in 2013. "I am what I always was. It's just been revealed to the world instead of being kept secret. I wasn't a woman who became a man - I never was a woman. I am a transgender person - I cross gender confines. I do not have to experience your restrictions - I surpass them."
