7. Human Camera
Stephen Wiltshire can look at any skyline on the globe and reproduce it from memory with total accuracy, and this talent has earned the 42-year-old from London the nickname “Human Camera”.
Well known for his artist abilities and contributions to the arts which include an MBE, Wiltshire is also autistic – a savant who can draw on his memory to recreate scenes in precise detail.
His particular ability was discovered at a young age, as he used pencil and paper in order to cope with the anxiety which often accompanies autism. Being in social situations and interacting with others has also always proved difficult for Stephen, so the popularity which his status as an artist has earned him has brought joy to his life!
