Cabo Blanco gained popularity in the 1950s thanks to the visit of Ernest Hemingway and the shooting of the fish scenes of "The Old Man and the Sea". Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Joe di Maggio and many other Hollywood celebrities from the golden era were also guests at Cabo Blanco.

At the heart of the scene was the exclusive Cabo Blanco Fishing Club, a luxurious and modernist facility built on land leased from the Lobitos Oil Company. Nowadays the fishing club is a ghostly building that has long been left to decay.

The photo was taken at the Cabo Blanco Fishing Club. Inbetween hitchhiking and living on the road in Peru and Bolivia, Peter Bock-Schroeder would visit his friends in the feudal country club of South America

They were not the pretty pictures of "willows by the river or beeches in the fog" that he was after, but rather the landscapes of a world violently "disturbed" by man.
