The Human Camera
His name is Stephen Wiltshire and he is “The Human Camera.” He was diagnosed as autistic at 3. With no language, he lived entirely in his own world. At the age of five, educators at the Queensmill School in London noticed that he enjoyed drawing and his drawings showed a masterful perspective, a whimsical line, and even a natural innate artistry. His first word was “paper.” He has a particular talent for drawing lifelike, accurate representations of cities, sometimes after having only observed them briefly.
