Shrinking job opportunities have caused young people to defer adulthood. Displaced from the expected life trajectory, they stay in school longer or work in coffee shops despite their degree. However, their dreams do not die. They hold onto hope and look for alternate paths to accomplishing their dreams.  They do not let their fire burn out. They wear bright colors in a sea of black, like totems protecting them from the unknown around them.

Mexican and Catholic aesthetics permeate these styles as youths relate to the sense of displacement expressed in the news about immigration reform and a religion without a leader.
