Sport photographer Anthony Causi died this Sunday at North Shore University Hospital in New York. Causi was a longtime associate of the New York Post, much appreciated among his colleagues. According to the official report, he died from the coronavirus at the age of 48.

Stephen Lynch, The Post’s editor-in-chief, said in a statement:

“Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend, and a brilliant journalist. He was, quite simply, one of the best sports photographers in New York City, capturing all the major moments of the past 25 years. Soft-spoken, funny, but most of all kind — he was respected by those he photographed and admired by those with whom he worked. The Post that you read, and the newsroom that we work in, are less colorful today because of his absence. Our hearts go out to his family, and we share their grief.”

The New York Post writes that Causi was born in Brooklyn, growing up in the borough’s Bensonhurst neighborhood. He joined The Post quite a while ago, in 1994. He started as a photo messenger, then became photo editor and eventually became a full-time photojournalist for this publication

Causi photographed numerous games of major sports teams: the Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Rangers and many more. He was loved and respected by teams and their trainers. Hearing about his death, many of them started saying their goodbyes via Twitter.

Causi is survived by his wife, Romina, and their two small children: John and Mia. He is also survived by his parents and his two sisters. To help Anthony Causi’s family, a GoFundMe account has been set up, and you can find it here.

    This may come across callous, but why set up a GoFundMe? Surely it’s the responsibility of the person and the family to ensure their own mortal remnants are properly taken care of? Whilst I appreciate his family will struggle, but so is 100,000 + families round the world, some arguably, in far worse financial circumstances.

    It’s sad we’ve lost his talent, but it’s our own duty that we ensure that when we die that our affairs are properly taken care of especially with the spectre of death walking over the world.
