Stephen Wiltshire, Human Camera

Stephen Wiltshire was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3.  He was mute and didn't relate with other people.  However, he is what is called an autistic savant.  It is like a deaf person can see sharper, or a blind person can hear things others can't.  Stephen is able to draw anything he sees, from memory, like the entire city of Rome.

His website has a large gallery of his work, and also some prints/originals for sale.  Some one needs to teach him how to pixel.

I saw a documentation about those savants, and I prefer to understand my surroundings, the faces of people and what they mean, instead of the ability to photocopy in my mind or solving enormous mathematic problems. Those are poor guys, but for them ... it's normal.

Yeah, £2000 is crazy, hardly enough i think.

He can't tie his shoes because his brain is all filled up with photographic memories. Motly our brainz are focused to the communication part in the early age, his was focused to the surroundings, living in a world of his own. Cool!
