request to use your photo[edit]

Dear Luca Galuzzi,

I am the editor of a tiny weekly newspaper (circulation under 5,000) in upstate New York: The altamont Enterprise & Albany County Post.

Your picture, "Leaving traces on soft sand dunes in Tadrart Acacus, a desert area in western Libya, part of the Sahara," which I found on wikipedia, would be perfect to illustrate a column we are printing next week on the value of solitude.

The column quotes from Paul Bowles's “Baptism of Solitude,” in which Bowles says that, whether a person has gone into the Sahara once or 10 times, the first thing that commands his attention is the “stillness.” In that “hard stony place ... an incredible, absolute silence prevails.” Even in the busy marketplaces, he says, “a conscious force [exists] which [resents] the intrusion of sound.” The underlying silence is so great that noise is minimized and eventually dispersed. Even the sky at night joins in; it “never really grows dark” but remains “an intense and burning blue” as if silence will not let the pilgrim go.

I can send you an online link to the pice once it is published with your picture.

Thank you, in advance for taking such a beautiful picture and for allowing us to use it.

Melissa hale-Spencer, editor
