London born architectural artist Stephen Wiltshire, is also known as the "human camera" for his ability to draw an entire cityscapes in depth after seeing it just once. He amazed everyone by drawing hundreds of London's buildings in exact scale, a 7 square-mile area from his own memory after just a 20 minutes flight with the helicopter over the city.

Stephen was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. At that early age he was unable to make himself understood. Some teachers from Queensmill, a school in Fulham for special needs children, forced him to shout “Paper!!!” by taking away his materials and then he managed to develop language skills by learning words related to his work. Now,at the age of 33,Stephen Wiltshire is capable to communicate with others, leading an independent life.
