Sergio Larraín Echeñique (1931 – 7 February 2012) was a Chilean photographer. He worked for Magnum Photos during the 1960s. He is considered the most important Chilean photographer in history.[1]

Photographs he took in Paris by Notre Dame Cathedral, which revealed scenes of a couple only upon processing, became the basis for Julio Cortázar's story, "Las Babas del Diablo", "The Devil's Drool", which in turn inspired Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 film Blowup.[2]
