Edward Keating Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death
My heart is heavy. My dear friend and mentor Edward Keating left the world on Sunday and to think of his absence feels gut wrenching.
I met Eddie nearly a decade ago in 2013. My husband, Jared, stumbled upon his post on Craigslist and I honestly thought it was a scam. A Pulitzer-Prize winning photo journalist was looking for an intern on Craigslist? I told Jared that if anything happened, it would be on him and went for the interview. I was just starting out in photography and remember being very nervous, because I didn’t have much experience – green as they come, as Eddie would say. As in tune as he was, he picked up on it and suggested walking down to the park right by his studio. We didn’t talk much, just sat there for a while until he cut the silence with “Don’t get comfortable, you gotta stay alert as a photographer.”
I ended up working with Eddie for the next few years. He was so kind and humble, with a true grit. He worked and taught with passion, wit, an incomparable eye and generosity. He was as real as it gets, called out your bullshit and you were better for it. His stories are worth a lifetime and starting the morning with a cup of Bustelo and Bob Dylan was the perfect combo.
We didn’t see each other these past few years and kept on talking about grabbing a coffee that never happened. I so wish we did. A few words of wisdom he shared with me that I’ll always remember:
Love the process.
There are no absolutes.
Stay on the edge and face the unknown.
By far his biggest pride and love was his beautiful family. I will forever treasure all of our moments and especially the day Carrie and Eddie flew to the DR to photograph our wedding. I’m eternally grateful. My heart is with you dear Carrie, Caitlin and Emily Rose.
Farewell my friend, who saw the world like no other. I feel lucky to have been in your presence. You are with me always.
“Let us go forth, the tellers of tales, and seize whatever prey the heart long for, and have no fear. Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust under our feet.”
― W.B. Yeats
