"Interest: architecture + interiors + visualizations + photography + motorsports + culture + language
I lived and worked for 2 years in Japan and was exposed to different architectures that influenced me. I love modern architecture especially the metabolist and concrete architecture movement that is one of the traits that can be seen in my works.
Tadao Ando, Kisho Kurokawa, Atelier Tekuto, Michel Rojkind and Richard Meier are just few of the architects that made my design principles and concepts form a whole new experience.
I am now based in Dubai UAE, working as a Concept Designer".

"As with all the greatest masters, when looking at Žiga's photographs you have the distinct impression that they are entirely 'directed', pre-arranged, and absolutely perfect in terms of scenography. Most of the time, however (as in the world of music, where he gained fame through his study and ‘directed’ portraits of musicians) this is simply not the case. What is clear, of course, is that his extensive years of experience in television, and as official photographer for theatre, puppet and, primarily, musical events, culminates in his images of Sardinia, both in the landscapes and portraits.
“All the world's a stage”, Shakespeare said, but only very few can truly feel this, and make it happen in everyday relations with objects, people and images. Žiga is one of these. To him, little matter that his lens captures you or me, or him or her. His relationship with those who pose for him is the same as that he enjoys indifferently with animate and inanimate nature: be it animals, plants, buildings, streets, walls or markets. Žiga simply ‘snaps’ life as it repeatedly yields him new images and moments. And above all this, he has this rare talent to grasp and capture those surplus moments of life as it passes us by, bursting out and compelling our attention. Through his photos, life speaks to us, the life we perceive as concrete, here and now, in Žiga's images remains fleeting, yet rambling, unique and eternal.
