Since October 2020, Bernardo San Rafael has been stepping into the icy Lake Zurich several times a week during winter months and dancing with swans to classical music.

After the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, almost the entire art industry came to a standstill. Thus, dance performance artist Bernardo San Rafael was caught cold and robbed of his vocation. The swans saved him during this difficult time, says the professional dancer.

Hadrien JeanRichard is a Swiss and French freelance Reportage-, Documentary- and Portrait Photographer based in Zurich, Switzerland.
