  1. I am curating an exhibition from the Library of Congress collection that will open next April at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. I have selected one of Mr. Ogbourne’s images for the exhibition. For invitations and various other purposes associated with the exhibition I need the contact information for Mr. Ogbourne
    Thank you for your assistance

    1. The photographer that took the picture was David Oggi Ogburn who lives in Washington DC. We spoke on the phone, I am still curious of which picture you chose. My number is 202 864 6500 . I mainly want you to get my name right. Ogburn. Have a great day

  2. Hello,

    We are making a four-hour PBS miniseries, working title “Making Black America,” hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. The miniseries is scheduled to air early next year.

    We found an image from your collection we may be interested in using in our miniseries (below). Please let us know what the process would be to obtain a master and permission to use this image. Please note we are still a few weeks away from being able to make a formal request but are currently putting together a budget and schedule with fees and turnaround time estimates.

    The specific rights we need are:
    All media (excluding theatrical), worldwide, in perpetuity, with in-context promotion
    Separately, the rate to use in non-context promo capacity.

    The photo we are looking at is the 7th in this article.

    Please feel free to email me back at madeleine.lawrence@mcgeemedia.com or call me at 716-863-2608.

    Thank you so much!
