The Living Camera

Stephen Wiltshire is an autistic man also known as "The Living Camera" for his ability to recall and sketch landscapes with incredible detail after viewing them only once. Here he draws from memory a 17-foot long aerial recreation of the city of Rome after seeing it for the first and only time on a 45-minute helicopter ride. Astounding. (via Bits & Pieces)
