| 10 things You Would Put in a Time Capsule | Alessandro Zuek Simonetti

Slow and Steady Wins the Race has always addressed the issue of time by proposing ideas that balance the timely with the timeless.

For our blog we asked friends, family and other people we admire to share with us what they would put in a time capsule.

New York City based photographer Alessandro Zuek Simonetti was born in Italy and grew up parallel to the urban street cultures of the early 90's. 

Still Lifes by Alessandro Simonetti 

Developing his own distinct photographic language reflects his deep interest in young niche cultures. Quite often each project stretches beyond the photographic medium which serves as a sign of his maturing expression as an artist. After his graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice in 2001, he became a professor of Photography at The Institute of Arts in Padova, Italy.

His works have been published in important national and international magazines such as Rolling Stone, GQ, and Tema Celeste. He has also collaborated with brands such as Carhartt WIP, Zoo York, Diesel, Lee, Bijules, Redbull, Evisu, Sartoria communication and Slam Jam.

4 - If I have to pick just one camera between the many i've I would choose her. Amazing shape, smooth and straight to the point.
5 - My most worn teeshirt since ever. Its felling apart.
6 - Old italian train map. I used to be obsessed by trains.
7 - My pharaoh's treasure.
