Stephen Wiltshire: The Living Camera

stephenwiltshire-humancamera

I remember seeing something on TV about Wiltshire. I was blown away. He is an autistic architect artist. He has a photographic memory and can sketch amazing pictures after having just looked at it once. And not a rough or pretty good, but down to the smallest details with amazingly accurate precision. Look at Tokyo or Rome or Madrid. These action shots of him drawing Dubai or Jerusalem or London.

He is in NYC and after having taken a 20 minute helicopter ride around Manhattan, is doing a drawing of the 305 miles of land on a 19 foot long piece of paper. Phenomenal.
