About three years ago it was the 1st time, when I noticed tendency of taking photos everywhere. It was at the National Gallery in London. A big crowd of visitors was taking pictures of every single picture and other pieces of art. They didn’t enjoy the art itself, but were just taking their pictures. I was pretty surprised when I saw it. Since that day the only thing I always see at art galleries is people taking pictures. Everywhere. “Look at me, I’m cool because I was there” – is this what they are thinking about? They don’t really enjoy art because they don’t even look at paintings. They push one another to take better photos and to have a better view. This happens everywhere. For example, I went to France two weeks ago, and one day I visited the French Paper Art Gallery. What did I see there? Yes, crowds of people taking photos and definitely to prove others that they were there. Moreover, now people tend to take photos of one another posing near a picture or to take selfie-photos. So they don’t look at the piece of art itself.
I would ban taking photos at art galleries if I could. But maybe there is a less drastic solution. People have to look at the art first… during a minute or so, and only then they may take pictures.


1.2 What does the journalist think about taking photos at art galleries?


1.3 Look at the highlighted words and try to guess their meaning.


1.4 Mark these sentences T (true) or F (false).
