I just stumbled over your pictures from the Sudanese Cairo protest- they are wonderful. I am currently writing up my dissertation on refugee resettlement. I did my fieldwork in Uganda, andd I brought along a photographer to document the predicament of exile in Kampala. But as I start my final chapter with a description of what went on in Cairo, I was wondering whether you would let me use one of your pictures- specifically the one posted in your blog entry- to illustrate that section.
We would like to request for your permission to use a picture from your website: https://viviansalama.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/ramadan.jpg?w=531&h=411 as teaching material in our secondary history book series entitled: Travelling Through History. This series of textbooks follows closely the history syllabus prepared by the Hong Kong Curriculum Development Council. This book will be published in June 2011.
The above noted picture is attached for your reference.
In addition to the print format, we would also like to feature this picture in an accompanying CD-Rom, which is a replication of the above noted in electronic format. Available free of charge only to those who have purchased the print format, the CD-Rom is a complementary resource that allows users of the printed book the convenience of viewing the contents on their personal computers. We would like to emphasis that the said CD-Rom forms part of, and is not separate from, the total archival files of the print edition.
It is our opinion that the above noted picture would be of benefit to teachers as a teaching resource, and to students in terms of enhancing their historical knowledge. Due acknowledgement of your kindness would be made in our skills book series.
We shall be pleased to come to a suitable arrangement with the owner. Should you have any requests or enquiries, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you in due course.
