Eddie Adams: Armed With A Camera

Eddie Adams... Marine Crossfire, Vietnam, 1965 (Archival Epson Print). From the exhibition Eddie Adams: Armed With A Camera at the Monroe Gallery of Photography. "...The exhibition of more than 65 photographs spans the entire range of Adams' legendary career, and includes rare vintage work prints from the personal studio collection of Eddie Adams. This year marks with the 40th anniversary of Adam's iconic 'Street Execution of a Vietcong prisoner', taken in 1968 in Saigon during the height of the Vietnam War. The shocking photograph, of the Chief of Police shooting a member of the Vietcong in the head, instantly appeared in newspapers and magazines world-wide and has been widely credited with turning American popular sentiment against the Vietnam War."
