The Human Camera - Stephen Wiltshire

[This post is written and copyrighted by FIRE Finance (]

Have you ever heard of a human camera? Well, we hadn't too until we stumbled upon Stephen Wiltshire. This autistic man is a human camera! With his immaculate memory he draws entire cities from memory right down to the true number of doors and windows of each building. Absolutely mind blowing isn't it? Check out this video which shows how he draws the entire city of Rome on five and half yards of paper after a 45 minute helicopter ride.

Stephen was born in London to West Indian parents on 24th April, 1974. As a child he was mute, and did not relate to other human beings. Aged three, he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language and lived entirely in his own world.

At the age of five, Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London, where it was noticed that the only pastime he enjoyed was drawing. It soon became apparent he communicated with the world through the language of drawing; first animals, then London buses, and finally buildings. These drawings show a masterful perspective, a whimsical line, and reveal a natural innate artistry.
