Janis excels in documentaries as well as staged scenes; human stories, captured in form of photography and moving pictures. Hamburg-based, his relationship with the city has helped him to grow into the creative mind and photographer he is. He draws inspiration from the people around him, from their behaviour and movements, which often makes his concepts relatable for everyone. "I enjoy people. Capturing them. I love to see who they are and how they express their being, to find their stories," he depicts. "My own way is the way of the object."
