Known for her compassionate and revealing photographic images of underground subcultures, Bay Area documentary photographer Jana Marcus’ award-winning work, Transfigurations, is a startling and groundbreaking photographic series on the transgender community.

Transfigurations explores transsexuals and their notions of masculinity and femininity as they change gender identities. Discovering that gender is both real and illusory, natural and constructed, Marcus' photographs shed light on the transformation from one sex/gender to another. The series also explores the importance of the body to gender identity as well as the effects of transformative practices on the body, creating a reality beyond ordinary experience.
