Photographer and author Stuart Goodman dies of coronavirus

The photographer and author Stuart Goodman has died of coronavirus aged 73, it has been confirmed.

Goodman died yesterday (2nd April, 2020), two weeks after his book One Saturday in 82 on Broadway Market was published by Own It.

The photography book, which details scenes of the east London market, was conceived while he worked as a shopkeeper there.

In a tribute, an Own It spokesperson said: "We first met Stuart in 2018 and were delighted to welcome him into the Own It family. His candid black and white photography immediately spoke to us and we had the privilege of publishing his book, One Saturday in 82 on Broadway Market, two weeks ago.

"We are so thankful that Stuart got to hold his finished book and experience the great amount of support and love the book has received.

"His book is a heartfelt reminder of the importance of community spirit and preserves a time which would otherwise be easily forgotten. Stuart will be remembered, and he lives on through the beautiful photographs and words he left with us."

Goodman worked as a Fleet Street photographer and picture editor, first making his name as a prize-winning photographer during the 1975 Balcombe Street Siege between the IRA and London's Metropolitan Police Service.
