Alongside these activities and with the expansion of social media, I began to present online portfolios, and continued working in Fine Art as well as Visual Art.

Social media has allowed me to share my photos—which are the result of his travels and visits to old places—with the entire world. On Instagram, i have collaborated with some of the best photographers and photo makers in the globe.
