KNWLS unveiled a sequel to their PROXY lockdown project
We were several months into lockdown when KNWLS dropped PROXY, their photography project in celebration of community, individuality and togetherness during the early stages of the pandemic.

Enter PROXY 2.0. Styled by Georgia Pendlebury and featuring familiar faces such as Alva Claire, Mia Regan and Xen Hur, this sequel project expands on the limits of the first.
