Our current instagram obsession has to be Maija Astikainen's photo series One-Dog Policy.
The Finnish photographer’s ongoing photo series was shot in several homes from 2010 - 2014, exploring how people often humanise their pets. The title of her project refers to the fact that China has a one-dog policy.
We love the way she seems to have effortlessly captured the human qualities we portray onto our dogs. Each image seems to be full of different emotions that we the owner imagine our dogs have. We found ourselves spending hours pondering the stories behind each of the dogs featuring in this captivating series.
