Johann Lurf spent several months documenting the Morris Reservoir near Azusa, California, which functioned for decades as a military torpedo-testing site. Now decommissioned, and rife with resulting infrastructural oddities, the oft-documented site is here transformed in RECONNAISSANCE through subtle movements by Lurf´s sly investment in visual perception play.
