Mark Schmidt is an art educator, working and living in Springfield Missouri. The medium for the work is photography that utilizes the cyanotype process.
Schmidt's work takes a deep view into what created that loss–and for what it means for those who still call Cairo home. Though once a thriving community, Cairo is essentially a ‘living ghost town,’ having experienced massive population decline.
