For this activity, you will need to turn to the poem 'War Photographer' by Carol Anne 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 comfort. War photographers are real people who risk their lives to take pictures of conflict - they help us visualise the horrors of war across the world.
