Since its creation in 1948, the State of Israel is isolated and beset by enemies seeking its destruction. This collective siege mentality is best expressed in the ubiquity of the thousands of bomb shelters found throughout the country. By law all Israelis are required to have access to a bomb shelter and rooms that can be sealed off in case of an unconventional weapons attack. There are over 10,000 public and private bomb shelters found throughout Israel and the Occupied Territories.

Adam Reynolds works as an architecture and design photographer in Indianapolis. His series »Architecture of an Existential Threat« was created between 2013 and 2015.
