I received the following message last Thursday morning from James Wilsdon a professor at the University of Sheffield in England. The image he requested and that I provided is shown below. Very surprised by the request and glad to help in whatever small way with this project. The URL for their network is: http://www.thenexusnetwork.org/ in case you are interested in what they are doing . I am not sure where in the publication the image will be used when it is finalized but he indicates that it will be on the cover.
Please forgive the email out of the blue, but I’m writing to see if it would be possible to purchase or license the use of one of your pictures for the cover of a report?
I’m an academic based at the University of Sheffield in the UK, and with colleagues, I’m about to publish a report called “Sustainability in Turbulent Times”, as the final output of a 3-year research network on the food-water-energy nexus (see http://www.thenexusnetwork.org/)
The report would have a relatively modest circulation – around 1000 hard copies and an online PDF on our site – and would be aimed mostly at an academic audience. Would it be possible to use or purchase the image for use in this way?
I’d be very grateful if you could let me know
With best wishes,

Director of Impact & Engagement
