The Photo Abum
rating: 0+x
Picture of SCP-XXXX

item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is contained in Storage Vault X-13 within Sector-19. SCP-XXXX is only to be handled by Level 3 Research Teams or personnel holding Level 3 clearance towards SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX is currently under indefinite quarantine until such time as Command retracts it.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a black, leather bound photo album containing a random number of blank and filled photos inside. Physically, SCP-XXXX's appearance is unremarkable as it bears no writing, designs or insignia on it. The photos within are all pictures of humans ranging in age and occupation. Upon interaction with SCP-XXXX, personnel disappear within 3 to 5 days afterwards. Examination of SCP-XXXX upon a personnel member's disappearance shows said personnel member now located in one of the photos within the atifact.

Location: SCP-XXXX was found within a tomb near Prague and was brought to Sector-19 by Mobile task Force Alpha-22 (current whereabouts unknown).

Addendum SCP-XXXX-a: Report Logs.

03-06-2███: Upon review, Artifact XXXX appears to be little more than a simple photo album. Research done upon it shows that it contains either photos of people or blank ones. The album shows little in the way of paranormal activity and makes me question as too whether it should be classified as an SCP at all. –Dr. Caine

03-15-2███: Following the disappearance of Dr. Eli Caine and four members of the Sub-sector 9 research team, I have replaced him as head researcher for Artifact XXXX. Currently I have found nothing interesting about it in the slightest. There are 89 photographs within it that depict humans and 161 blank photographs. The humans within the photographs seem to primarily depict doctors and scientists, though there a fair number of security personnel within them as well. The ratio of people within each picture seems completely random to me and I see little else worth investigating. –Dr. Sycorak

03-23-2███: Until such time as Dr. Sycorak is found, I have assumed command of research on Artifact XXXX. I have found little interesting about it other than the fact that 92 photos are of humans and the other 158 appear blank; a different amount to that which the late Dr. Sycorak recorded. Due to his absence I am unable to conclude whether or not new pictures had appeared or Dr. Sycorak made an error in counting. I had brought SCP-███ in to examine the artifact due to his ability to sense the paranormal, but reciived limited results from his interaction with the artifact. –Secondary Assistant Koon

04-02-2███: The whereabouts of Koon following the containment breach and escape of SCP-███ are still unknown. Artifact XXXX still remains mostly inactive, though it now has one more filled picture than the amount recorded by Koon. I’m not sure if it simply makes new pictures or if previous researchers have been tampering with the artifact. Further research is required. –Researcher Tanner

04-02-2███: The missing personnel are in the pictures! I was looking through Artifact XXXX and I found SCP-███ in the background of a portrait. Further searching turned up Dr. Caine and Dr. Sycorak as well as Koon and other members of the SCP-XXXX Research team. I believe that the extra pictures that were added are filled by the missing personnel members but I can't know for sure if this theory is correct. I strongly advise against interacting with the artifact until one or more of the missing personnel are found. In the event that I disappear in the near future the artifact is to be placed under immediate quarantine. -Researcher Tanner

04-07-2███: SCP-XXXX is to be placed under immediate quarantine until the whereabouts of any of the missing personnel involved with it, including SCP-███, become known. –O5-3
