Worksheet Overview

For this activity, you will need to turn to the poem 'War Photographer' by Carol Ann Duffy, which can be found in your Anthology.


This poem explores the life of a war photographer, who takes pictures of conflicts for British newspapers. The poem takes us inside the man's thoughts and work, creating a sense of the brutality of war and the indifference (not caring) of those who live in war-free zones.


War photographers are real people, who risk their lives to take pictures of conflict - they help us truly understand the horrors of war.


You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples. These quotations are for reference only.
