We’ve just learned the news that longtime sports photographer Anthony Causi has sadly passed away.
His work from the NY Post has been one of the best throughout the years.
He joined the Post in 1994 as a photo messenger. He ended up working his way up to a photo editor and a full-time photojournalist.
He passed away from a battle with COVID-19.
Ken Davidoff of the Post has a statement from editor-in-chief Stephen Lynch in an obituary piece:
“Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend and a brilliant journalist,” Stephen Lynch, editor in chief of the newspaper, said. “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.”
His last post on Instagram was from March 22. “I never thought I would get something like this.i thought I was indestructible. If I do make it out of here. I promise you this the worlds not going to know what hit it”
