The Human Camera

London-born architectural artist Stephen Wiltshire is also known as the "human camera" for his ability to draw an entire cityscape in depth after seeing it just once.

Stephen was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Unable to make himself understood, he shouted "Paper!" after some teachers took away his materials. He has managed to develop language skills related to his work. Now, at the age of 33 he is able to communicate with others, leading an independent life.

He amazed everyone by drawing hundreds of London's buildings in exact scale, a 7 square-mile area from his own memory after just a 20 minutes flight with the helicopter over the city.
