Swiss Life 4 Hands Prize
The Swiss Life 4 Hands Prize is an artistic initiative developed by the Swiss Life Foundation since 2014. Designed to reveal a common original creation, the Prize invites, every two years, a photographer and a composer to imagine a cross creation for an original joint project. This innovative approach promotes dialogue between photography and music.
