Name, first namede Wit, TimoYear of birth1987UniversityHKBField of Interest / research fieldCommunication Design / Visual CommunicationTitle of projectThe Loneliness of the Long-Distance RunnerAbstractOutside the limelight and far away from the public eye the marathon runner becomes a long-distance runner. On his own he's pulling circles. He encounters himself.

In the theoretical part of my master's thesis I did a visual analysis of sports reporting photographs. Further I focused on images that runners see before their inner eye.

In the final publication staged pictures and statements from interviewed runners give the reader a sense for the setting in which a lone fighter performs.
