Wyss, the knowing photographer-companion, is an ideal cast member, an unassuming observer, countering vanity with a lack of vanity, composed, sometimes ironical, always on his guard and in top shape. Photography has also been termed an act of “capturing the instant”, and this transpires in his figurative language, despite his undisguised sympathy for the subject. Respect yes - empathy never. Thus his photographic portraits of artists are clear and sharp “to the quick”, distances are correct, even in a figurative sense. The camera is his instrument, he plays it like a clarinet, he uses it as a foil.
