Migo - A Friendly Lab, Santiago, Chile


Migo is a photo lab and store which promotes analogue photography. We offer a flexible and comfortable service for pretty much any development process and print you wish. From 35mm film to Instagram!

We talked to lab manager Sofía Gana and asked some Lomography questions:

Which one is your favourite Lomography camera and why?
It is a quite recent camera, but I will say that the Konstruktor is my favorite. Once the mystery product was presented to the world, I was amazed with the idea of building a 35mm reflex cam from scratch!!! For someone so fond of DIY things, these camera was just a perfect match! It took me 91 minutes to build it. I sat with everything on front, and ordered it so i didn’t lose anything. I even registered the process :) Once ready, I put a 400 ASA film and enjoyed shooting for the first time this reflex beauty. Really amazed with the results!!!

What’s the weirdest Lomographic moment you’ve ever had?
We have had a lot of older people coming by that get really happy to have their pics in paper again. One of these, once got staring at a La Sardina Splendour for a long while and ask me if it was a modern version of an Irwin Kandor! Then he told me that his great father came from Europe with one of dose cameras so he new it from a kid, but during the 90-s the 127mm film was discontinued so he forgot the cam and it got lost :(

What is the nerdiest question you’ve ever been asked in your shop?
Mmmm… I don´t know if it is the weirdest, but we get a lot of questions regarding the number of MegaPixels of the LomoCameras!!!

Where is the best place to shoot some Lomographic masterpieces in your city?
Personally I think that the City Center is the most appealing spot in town. Not only the well known areas like Bellas Artes or Paris/Londres, but just walking around its street you can find really nice scenes and places to shoot!
