Boxing is big in Cuba. Huge. And they start early. At the revered Rafael Trejo Boxing Gym, kids as young as five line up to be weighed, measured, and trained.

The operation is serious and very professional. The kids go through the drill same as the adults--who also take it very, and I mean really very--seriously. When asked for a photograph, they'd stop, bring their fists up and look fierce. But what I wanted to capture was the in-between moments where their guard dropped, and they were just little kids: perplexed, earnest, and even a little scared.
