Although Harold has written/taught various topics on photography and printing, I can't seem to find what film and developer did he use, especially for his Coney Island series.

Perhaps others can shed a light?

    \$\begingroup\$ Unless it's documented it's unlikely anyone knows. In addition what paper he used & how he made the prints is probably more important (and the answer to that will certainly be 'a paper you can no longer get'). \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ For any shooter who has had a long and lively career, I'd expect their film and paper choices to evolve or change. I would consider asking about all photos to be too broad a question anyway. Can this question be limited to a single image? \$\endgroup\$
