C. Focus on lines 3 to 8. What adjectives best describe Glastonbury Tor? (two different ideas) Use elements from the text to justify your answers.

Glastonbury Tor is a calm and mysterious place, according to the article. In fact it is described as a monument ''shroud[ed in] mist'' (l.3) by a ''placid'' (l.4) lake, an ''ethereal'' (l.7) setting with a very ''spiritual'' (l.8) feel to it. But there is another side to this monument, which evokes ''murky history'' (l.6) and ''forgotten'' (l.6) ''heroes'' (l.6).


D. Copy the right answer(s) and justify with elements from the text.

a. be informative, as we can see when he says that a picture can ''be key to conveying information'' (l.15)

E. 1. Name three types of landscapes found in the submitted photographs and justify each of them by quoting from the text.

1. Among the submitted photographs, there were urban landscapes, or ''cityscapes'' (l. 22), rural landscapes depicting the ''rolling countryside'' (l.22) and well as photographs of the sea and its ''turquoise waters'' (l.23).


2. Explain in one sentence what this suggests about the British landscape.

This suggests that for a relatively small country, the United Kingdom has an impressive variety of landscapes to offer.


F. 1. Identify the two sponsors of the 2014 competition.

1. According to the Daily Mail, the 2014 competition was sponsored by ''VisitBritain'' (l.30) and ''Countryside is GREAT'' (l.30-31).


2. In your own words, give two reasons why one of the sponsors supports the competition. Justify with elements from the text.

VisitBritain's role is to attract tourists, that is why such a competition is a great opportunity for them to find beautiful pictures to ''raise [Britain's] profile'' (l.37) and steal customers from ''competitor destinations'' (l.35)


G. Say if this statement is True or False. Explain your choice in your own words and justify with two quotations from the text.

This statement is False. In fact, the article does not criticize the competition, it is very positive about the concept, describing it as one of the ''world's most exciting photography competition'' (l.13) 



I. Pick out information about the scene (country, time of day, season).

From the clues in the text, we know that the scene takes place in ''summer'' (l.2), one ''late-afternoon'' (l.3) in ''England'' (l.16). This is confirmed later by the expression ''a warm summer evening in England'' (l.15-16)


J. Put the following sentences in chronological order.

3 / 1 / 4 / 2


K. 1. Comment on the overall mood of the people outside. Justify with two elements from the text.

1. William Boyd's text describes the people outside as happy, ''careless and untroubled'' (l.18). The narrator's description also mentions ''laughter'' several times, line 3, line 4, line 9 and 18.


2. What event may be taking place outside?

Some social event is probably taking place outside, perhaps a wedding reception or a birthday party since the narrator mentions a ''marquee'' (l.10), ''canapés'' (l.10) and ''punchbowls'' (l.11)


L. Focus on lines 14 to 20.

1. What are the narrator’s intentions in taking a photograph? (two ideas) Justify each idea with one quotation from the text.

1. The narrator wants to capture the atmosphere of that evening, she uses the expression ''capture that moment'' (l.15). In the analysis of her motivation, the narrator also mentions her intention to ''stop time'' (l.20) and forever freeze one moment in time thanks to her camera.


2. What does this passage show about the power of photography? (two elements)

This passage shows that photography has the power to capture a moment, not just the various elements that one can see, but also the mood, the atmosphere of that moment and not only share it with the world, but also freeze it and save it from time.



N. Document C involves two types of photographers: the tourists and Elena Marimon Munoz.

1. Using elements from the picture, give two reasons why the tourists are taking photographs.

1. From what we can see of the way the tourists are composing their shots, focusing on Stonehenge itself and the light from the, they are taking photgraphs to capture the light and the monument itself. Also, if you look closely, you notice that mostshots are taken above the owner of the camera's head, so I believe that the other goal of the tourists is to take a picture to see what they cannot appreciate while standing in a crowd.


2. In what ways do Elena Marimon Munoz’s intentions differ from those of the tourists? (three elements)

Yes, Elena Marimon Munoz's photograph, depicts Stonehenge and the beauty of the light in that particular moment. However, we see that the bottom third is composed of the crowd of tourists, so obviously, Stonehenge is not her only focus.

Finally, when you take into account the title that she gave to her photograph, it becomes clear that her subject is more the relationship of today's Brits to their past, and the contrast between modern and ancient technologies, than the monument itself.



P. Comment on the power of photography as shown in the three documents. (three forms of power)

All of these documents show a different facet of the power of photography. In document A, with the competition, we see that photography has the power to convey beauty, attract and inspire people. Document B shows a more existential or philosophical aspect of photography which is to stop time, to capture fleeting moments and extract them from the unstoppable flow of time. And finally, with the last document, we see that photography can also be a tool for social or sociological analysis, very useful to convey not just the scene itself but also the photographer’s point of view on what is taking place. 



1. Elena Marimon Munoz gives an acceptance speech at the British Life Photography Award ceremony on the virtues and limits of photography. Write her speech. (300 mots ±10%)

Dear President of the British Life Photography Award Committee, dear jury members, fellow competitors, ladies and gentlemen.


It truly is an honour to be standing here in front of you tonight. It is an honour and a great pleasure but actually I'd rather talk about photography than about myself. You see, unlike me, photography is a fascinating subject. Most photographers in the room have probably experienced those moments when you feel almost all powerful, a demigod with the power to stop time. As well as other moment when your camera feels utterly inadequate.


I hope for your sake that you've had more of the former moments. When you manage to grab a look, a smile, that precise ray of light hitting the waterfall so exquisitely…. And you know if you hadn't been there, no one else would feel what you've felt. But you captured it and you saved it from time. Prometheus stole fire from the gods to bring light to humanity, and you used light (and some digital magic) and you stole beauty for the whole world to see.


Yes indeed, photography is a powerful thing. And the most intriguing aspect of a photograph is that if you know how to look, it tells you more about the person who took it than about its subject. You see, in a way, a photograph never really captures a moment, but rather the photographer's feeling about that moment.


And sometimes what we, as photographers, feel is powerless. When some of my colleagues go to warzones to report on the horrors of war, I know they feel the limitations of our art. We can show the world what we see, but we cannot stop it from happening or change anything about it. 


And yet we keep trying because a picture will always be worth a thousand words. I hope that next year's contestants will once again prove the saying true. Thank you.


2. Discuss this statement from Document B: A camera can be a “wonderful machine” (l. 19). (300 mots ±10%)

In his novel Sweet Caress, William Boyd writes that a camera can be a ''wonderful machine'' and indeed, it is true that taking pictures is a wonderful and powerful thing. We all have in mind some iconic photos, of a young woman holding out a flower to a heavily armed military, of a naked child running away screaming from the horrors of war and so many others. Yet, are cameras always wonderful or are there some side effects to their constant presence in our lives?


Photographs are powerful ways of capturing moments and turning them into memories, saving them from the passage of time. Our friend's smiling faces, our lover's eyes can be photographed and, preserved even as they age and change. Meanwhile, by some strange process, photographs capture not only the subjects but also the mood. They act as a reminder of everything we associate with our loved ones. They are powerful emotional triggers which can make us cry or laugh, which can shock us and lead us to take action.


And yet nowadays, when every phone has a camera function, we also see a darker side to photography developing. First, anyone can be photographed without his or her consent. This is not a new problem, and it has existed for decades with the paparazzi and their methods to get the best celebrity shots, but it is now an everyday problem for many more people, such as teachers in classrooms.


Furthermore, with the use of social networks – some of them exclusively dedicated to images such as Instagram, or Snapchat – it has become more important to stage your life and take good pictures of it than to experience it fully. We have become actors and directors in our own play, hoping for our audience's approval and measuring our happiness with the number of likes and followers.

So as we have seen, photography is a powerful tool, which is directly connected to our emotions. As such, it can be used for positive and negative purposes and the same could be said of photography than of money, it is a good slave but a terrible master.
