The Human Camera
Next Wednesday 9 April at 9pm, Channel Five TV's Extraordinary People series investigates the unique talent of British artist Stephen Wiltshire MBE, an autistic savant with an eidetic (photographic) memory. I first reviewed Stephen's work in 2006 when he opened his own art gallery in London (CLICK). The Channel Five team took Stephen for a 15-minute helicopter ride to see how much of London he could draw from memory. I can predict the result: no problem! Last year Stephen exhibited a 360-degree large-scale panorama of Tokyo (CLICK). You must see this programme to believe Stephen's astonishing ability. Click the title link to visit his website.
