For dutch newspaper DVHN (Dagblad van het Noorden), the place where I grew up, I did a portrait of the first winner of the 4 miles of Groningen; Vincent Rousseau.

I also scanned some negatives of a story I did on the 4 miles of Groningen in 1993, the first year on the art-academy the Hague. Good old b&w photography of the winner Haile Gebreselassie, and others crossing the finish more exhausted. Two of the pictures will be in the book  about 25 years 4 miles Groningen.
