Artistic Savant

Stephen Wiltshire from London is a star among savants. Stephen is autistic. He did not speak his first words "pencil" and "paper" until he was 5. Yet, when he was 11 he drew a perfect aerial view of London after only one helicopter ride. In this film, Stephen draws an aerial view of Rome after one viewing. It takes him three days to draw what he saw for 45 minutes.

They call him the Living Camera. I watched this during a conference call and was blown away.
