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."
