digitally captured emotions

  public exposure... exhibits... participation... resume... publications...  
Through a powerful combination of intuition, technique and patience, photographer Jorge Vismara captures intimate images of nature, human emotions and the performing arts.
Mr. Vismara first explored photography at hochshule für gestaltung (hfg), Ulm, Germany, while studying industrial design and cinema.
His current photographic work was born from his frequent travels to Bali, Indonesia, where the culture, in which art and spirituality are inextricably integrated into daily life, awoke his passion for capturing the images of the world around him. These images are now seen in dozens of publications about Balinese and Asian performing arts.
A creative computer consultant since 1987, he has also been developing a revolutionary multimedia museum project for the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. He is the founder and webmaster of one of the largest website promoting Brazilian culture in the US. (

To take a photograph is always a surprise, a mute conversation with the object, a feeling of the moment, an interaction with the shapes and colors of the world outside...

To take a photograph is to watch and pay attention, to discover, to nurture the unexpected, it's like walking in a new trail in the forest, it's a permanent pilgrimage to a new sacred place...
