Eddie Adams has died

Eddie Adams has died at 71. Just last week the NPPA sent out a poignant message warning of his looming death from Lou Gehrig's disease. Who is he, you ask? The photographer who took the iconic image of an on-street execution in Vietnam and who set up the Eddie Adams Workshop. Top video here.

Sad. Eddie Adams led very interesting lives.
Found an mp3 file where explains his view of the execution shot. Perhaps the best description of
the day Eddie photographed the execution may be found in Peter Arnett's Live
from the Battlefield
