Paranoid by Design...

Paranoid by Design an article in the May 09 issue of Popular Mechanic by Joe Pappalardo with photographs by Noah Sheldon

I shot the photos for an interesting albeit, horrifying article about a new level 4 bio-safety lab located at Fort Detrick military base.

This lab will do research on the world's deadliest pathogens like Ebola and Marburg. It looks like a non-descript suburban 3 story office building from the outside, still we were not able to photograph the exterior because of security concerns (it doesn't even show up on google maps).

These will be the only photographs ever taken of the lab. Once the pathogens are introduced no one but a handful of scientists in space suits will ever enter.
