This Man Has Been Called the “Human Camera.” The Reason Why Is Breathtaking

Stephen Wiltshire has been dubbed “The Human Camera” for his extraordinary talent and abilities. You see, Stephen is known across the world thanks to his spectacularly accurate and detailed cityscapes.
So far, he’s drawn many famous cityscapes, including New Your City’s famous skyline. He’s also drawn Singapore and London, but the most impressive thing about him is that he draws everything from his memory.
Yep, you read that right. Stephen doesn’t use pictures of videos, it’s enough for him to see a cityscape once to be able to create highly-detailed versions of them on paper.
The man has an incredible and unique talent for drawing lifelike, accurate representations of cities after only briefly observing them, and his exceptional skills have got him an MBE for services to the art world in 2006.
And he’s managed to do it all despite being diagnosed with autism at age three. His talent was first discovered at age five when Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London. Stephen didn’t interact with other children and the only thing he seemed to enjoy doing was drawing.
It soon became obvious to his teachers that Stephen communicated with the world through the language of drawing. His first drawings were of animals, then London buses, and finally buildings.
His work today conveys a masterful perspective and showcase a natural innate artistry.
One of the projects he is best known for is the sketching of legendary skyscrapers as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building in New Your City. Take a look:
