Publisher's Description

Karen Knorr’s Gentlemen, published this September in collaboration with Eric Franck Fine Art, takes us inside the hallowed halls of the most venerable private gentlemen’s clubs of 1980s London, and considers the patriarchal values of the English upper classes with beautifully precise photographs and texts constructed out of speeches of parliament and the news at that time.

Gentlemen - the follow up to the critically acclaimed Belgravia (November, 2015) - uses humour to explore attitudes amongst the English establishment in the 1980’s. Knorr noted that despite being Prime Minister and head of the Conservative party, Margaret Thatcher as a woman was not then, nor would be now, allowed full membership at the Conservative gentlemen’s club ‘The Carlton’.

Old Etonians, such as the former British prime minister David Cameron, still belong to such gentlemen’s clubs, where behind the scenes influence is used to sway politics and business to this very day.
