Photographer Ursula Daphne Aitchison’s joyful pet project

Ursula and her golden retriever Hugo

Ursula and her golden retriever Hugo are a familiar sight in London’s parks, scouting for dog owners to star in Ursula’s picture series ‘Phodography’. The photographer, 29, started snapping people and their pooches four years ago, posting the photos on her Instagram feed. Her shots are so popular a book is planned for later this year. Worcestershire-born Ursula says: ‘I love that quote [by animal advocate Roger Caras]: “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”’
