cairo, illinois: sunken island, walled city, ghost town. a self-imposed isolation from the world caused by the city’s encompassing levee walls and years of racism and economic depression left it in a state of abandonment and utter disrepair. walls crumbling. bricks fading. storefronts looted and destroyed. today, cairo stands as a remnant of its former self, victim to the decay of time.
