The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is a poem and a song by Gil Scott-Heron from 1971. I wonder what he would say now with the BLM protests?
His statement is somewhat similar to Magritte saying this is not a pipe. The revolution isn’t something that we can see and if we can see it, there is no single image that would be able to illustrate that.
The revolution will not come from corporations and Scott-Heron lists a number of ways that the revolution won’t occur.
There’s always more in life than the things that we can see, photograph or even read about. Even grainy photos of ufos can at least cause us to wonder about those things which are beyond our vision.
As always, I look forward to your comments. Have you ever had a sighting? Do you believe or think that the photos are helpful? And What do you believe about photography are all good topics.
