Harry Lapow (1909-1982) was a New York graphic designer turned photographer who studied with Lisette Model and Sid Grossman. He is best known for the images collected in his iconic book Coney Island Beach People (New York: Dover, 1978), a selection of 138 photos taken at the South Brooklyn beach from 1952 to 1977. His photo of an Italian wedding on the beach was included in Edward Steichen's important Family of Man exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art.
