Eddie Adams (June 12, 1933September 19, 2004) was an American photographer noted for portraits of celebrities and politicians and as a photojournalist having covered 13 wars.

It was while covering the Vietnam War for the Associated Press that he took his best-known photograph – the picture Execution of a Viet Cong Guerrilla [1].

Adams won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography and a World Press Photo award for the photograph (captioned 'General Nguyen Ngoc Loan executing a Viet Cong prisoner in Saigon'), but would later lament its notoriety.

The photograph was used on the cover of London Oz, issue 10, March 1968.
