For this activity, you will need to turn to the poem 'War Photographer' by Carol Ann Duffy, which can be found in your anthology.
The poem is written about a war photographer who has returned home and is developing his photos. The process of developing old-style film photos is rather unusual for many to understand today. Old style film is very sensitive to light, so it must be done in a dark room lit with a red light. War photographers do a very dangerous job, many are killed and injured as they must get in harm's way to get the photos they require.
The poem focuses on two main themes:
The horror of war.
Our lack of care for the people suffering in these wars.
In the following questions, you will be asked about the meaning of these themes.
