“ORO COLATO” – issue n. 12

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Music

We open this month of May with lots of news, but above all lots of new music. Yes, because May, like no other month, is a symbol of rebirth and a source of inspiration for artists who let themselves be enchanted by the nature that is blooming again.
For this reason, in this edition of “ORO COLATO” you will find 20 tracks to re-bloom, while waiting for summer and the scorching heat, salt water and Piña colada.

But now stop dreaming, here are the best tracks of these two and as always there are no algorithms involved, enjoy.

Before we begin, as always, be careful not to take our words for ORO COLATO.

  • Let’s hit the ground running, which is technically impossible, but nothing is impossible when it comes to Billie Eilish who returns with “Your Power”, waiting for the new album that will be released at the end of July.
  • One step at a time, one song a day, BLUEM has shaped a curated, unique and inspired project, where personal lyrics and an atavistic and essential sound go hand in hand with visual work, we have chosen “GIOVEDÌ” for you.
  • We are still in spring and PAN DAN knows it well, debut single that bodes well, keep an eye on her, do not say we did not warn you.
  • We can already talk about colossal with the new album “KHALED KHALED”, among the 14 tracks we have chosen “I DID IT” with Post Malone, DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion and Lil Baby.
  • Here is the third single from her highly anticipated album “Hope For Sale”, Chiiild in “Gone” tells the story of a young love and the challenges that every relationship inevitably faces.
  • An absolutely noteworthy return is that of Travis Scott, thanks to Baby Keem who wanted him for his new “durag activity”.
  • With an unpredictable flow and a river of words blown right in the face, the singer-songwriter and rapper is ready to infect everyday life of each of us, here’s “Vietnam” by Giuse The Lizia.
  • Debut album for Ya Tseen who pleasantly surprised us with “Indian Yard”, we would have liked to include them all but we chose “Get yourself together”.
  • From one debut to another, space also for Charlie Houston and his “Adore” ft. CHRIS YONGE.
  • Another project not to be missed is that of girl in red that we are sure with his new album “if i could make it go quiet” will conquer you.
  • Let’s move just for a moment to Belgium because the L’or du Common together with Lous and The Yakuza have packaged a nice hit entitled “Sable”.
  • New pearl from “A COLORS SHOW”, let yourself be completely kidnapped by the new single of Children of Zeus titled “No love song”.
  • Needless to say, Cuco instead churned out the usual hit, go run, grab your headphones and listen to his new “Forevermore”.
  • The wait is over, the album is coming, in the meantime let’s enjoy the appetizer, here is “Interlude” by J. Cole.
  • Cactus Jack label artist, Don Toliver, is starting to give us a taste of his next project through the release of a cool single to consume titled “What You Need”.
  • What are you going to do? NADA. Gué Pequeno, Capo Plaza and Pablo Chill-E tell you in TY1’s new album.
  • Having broken their three-year silence, LUMP are back on the scene, nice and loaded with their “Animal”.

The bond between man and nature in Alexandre Delamadeleine’s photographs

The bond between man and nature in Alexandre Delamadeleine’s photographs

Giulia Guido · 5 days ago · Photography

The human body and its environment merge into one in Alexandre Delamadeleine‘s breathtaking shots. 

Alexandre Delamadeleine is a French photographer born in Annecy, who now lives in Paris, but it is not the city’s busy streets and building facades that catch his eye. Interested in the works of the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, especially the essay “Nature” (1836) in which he addresses various themes such as the meaning of nature, beauty, the language of nature and how to establish a true relationship with it, Alexandre tries to explore the same topics through his images. 

In the photographic series “Balance” and “Playground” we can see his style and the subjects he photographs to express his point of view and his thoughts. 

These are shots in which the surroundings, be it a plain, a beach or a rock face, are predominant and occupy a large part of the space. Within this, however, there is always a young woman whose movements and positions are captured. Positions that perfectly underline how Man is now part of nature, assimilated into it, and therefore it is no longer necessary to stand up to demonstrate a non-existent superiority, but the body lets itself go, falls, rolls, jumps, merges with the elements that surround it. 

The final result is shots with surreal and ethereal atmospheres created by a light that never blinds, but is always gentle and relaxing. Looking at Alexandre Delamadeleine’s shots, we can’t help but breathe a sigh of relief, hoping to experience that freedom sooner or later. 

Check out a selection of shots below and visit Alexandre’s website and follow him on Instagram to make sure you don’t miss his upcoming work.

Tamara Lichtenstein and her analog and female photography

Tamara Lichtenstein and her analog and female photography

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Photography

They could be frames from a film or photographs from a personal diary from the 1980s. Tamara Lichtenstein‘s analog shots enclose a timeless beauty that never tires. 

Originally from Bolivia, Tamara lives in Hudston, Texas, and started taking pictures when she was still a little girl, when her mother gave her a camera and decided to put all her creativity into the shots she took. 

Today Tamara Lichtenstein’s name is internationally recognized and, in addition to collaborating with different brands and clients, she has realized several personal projects that have literally captured our attention and our hearts.

At the center of Tamara’s artistic research we can surely find the female universe and its facets: leafing through her shots we meet faces and bodies without filters, wrapped in their natural beauty. 

The grain and style of analog photography combined with the perfect use of light and the effects of double exposure, a recurring technique in Tamara’s shots, give the photographs a cinematographic style that is impossible to forget. 

Below you can find a selection of the shots, but to find out more visit Tamara Lichtenstein’s website and Instagram profile.

Kamonwan Norralak and her photographic experiments

Kamonwan Norralak and her photographic experiments

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

The first thing that impressed us about Kamonwan Norralak was her age. The Thai photographer is only 19 years old, yet she has already defined her style and is always trying something new.

As is often the case, Kamonwan Norralak started taking pictures at the age of 15 almost by accident, taking pictures with her mobile phone or photographing her favourite band at a concert. But the more time passed, the more her passion grew, so much so that she forgot her dream of becoming a designer or architect.

Her work, her approach and her subjects have changed a lot over the years, and three projects that she herself talked about are proof of this. The first, which she took two years ago, is the most conceptual and focuses on food. In what could be an exercise in style, Kamonwan has rethought food, imagining certain foods out of their ordinary guise and creating surreal images.

With the second project, “Friends”, Kamonwan focused her lens on one of her friends, proving that you don’t have to be a model to be the star of a photo shoot that gets right to the viewer.

The last one, entitled “Reverse”, is the project the photographer presented for her graduation. In these shots in which the focus is all on the subject and the black backdrop that seems to swallow him up, Kamonwan wants to tell us that in her opinion what we show to others is nothing more than a reflection of who we really are.

If you are curious about Kamonwan Norralak’s upcoming photographic projects, follow her on Instagram and check out a selection of her shots below.
