The Living Camera

Last year, Joseph and I watched a brilliantly inspiring BBC documentary, The Human Camera, about an autistic artist who captures entire cities with pen and paper - with only one glance.

Pictured above, New York times has captured Wiltshire sketching non other than The Big Apple. You can read the article HERE.

In this video, London artist Stephen Wiltshire manages to draw the entire city of Rome on a large canvas in just three days. Mind you, he had only seen Rome once, by means of a 45-minute helicopter ride.

  1. There's actually an artist in Cincinnati who works in a similar fashion, also autistic. His style is a little more fanciful and follows it's own sort of spatial logic. But he has made some beautiful huge wall drawings of the Nati.
