After his discharge, Sivan Farag photographed the gulf war, and presented the "City at War" exhibition, presented in Israel and in the US, following which Sivan Farag accompanied the immigration from Eastern European countries to Israel and a variety of events that changed the country in the field of business and have been published in Israel and abroad.
