DREAMs Deferred represents a collaboration between The Immigrant Story and acclaimed Portland photographer, Jim Lommasson. The exhibition is designed to amplify the voices of undocumented immigrants from Mexico and Central America who came to the United States as children or young adults and grew up navigating school, work and social life in a country that does not recognize them as citizens.

For the exhibition, The Immigrant Story produced short-form narrative accounts documenting both the obstacles confronting those who grow up undocumented in the United States and the inspiration and resilience those obstacles can cultivate. Profiles of these individuals and details regarding their journeys are accompanied by portraits in the hopes that the viewer will feel an immediate and personal connection with the subject.

DREAMs Deferred representa una colaboración entre The Immigrant Story y el aclamado fotógrafo de Portland, Jim Lommasson. La exposición está diseñada para amplificar las voces de los inmigrantes indocumentados de México y América Central que llegaron a los Estados Unidos como niños o adultos jóvenes y crecieron navegando por la escuela, el trabajo y la vida social en un país que no los reconoce como ciudadanos.

Para la exposición, The Immigrant Story produjo relatos narrativos breves que documentan tanto los obstáculos que enfrentan los que crecen indocumentados en los Estados Unidos como la inspiración y la resistencia que esos obstáculos pueden cultivar. Los perfiles de estas personas y los detalles sobre sus viajes van acompañados de retratos con la esperanza de que el espectador sienta una conexión inmediata y personal con el tema.
