A number of hugely iconic and instantly recognizable photographs will be auctioning with Heritage later this year. The auction will offer many pieces by Ansel Adams as well as this harrowing image by Eddie Adams showing police chief General Nguyễn Ngọc Loan executing Vietcong prisoner, Nguyễn Văn Lém, on a Saigon street, on February 1, 1968. The image hasn't been assigned an estimate yet-though an over-sized version sold for $43,200 at Swann Auctions in 2009.
