This is my group of little competitive gymnasts at Memphis Point Gymnastics Academy. This is a documentary series about young girls just starting out in a rigorous sport. Focusing on their warm up stretches, is an extension of the theme that they are beginners. Before doing the insanely difficult tricks that are seen at the Olympics, these young girls have to learn the basics. To them, the tricks they see the older girls do are unfathomable. But like any other sport, one has to start somewhere. I, along with my assistant, have been given the opportunity of being the first people who mold them in their competitive career. It is a strenuous and enthusiastic process that has been difficult and rewarding. Watching them grow through these photos has been a pleasure.
