The man who can’t sleep, Ngoc Thai

Stephen Wiltshire, a photographer who has a photographic memory
A quick helicopter trip above each metropolis was all it took for British artist Stephen Wiltshire to memorize and sketch precise details of the skylines of New York City, Dubai, Hong Kong, Rome, and Tokyo. Stephen is an exceptional artist who only needs a glimpse to capture every tiny detail on paper. Wiltshire, who is autistic and didn’t talk until he was five years old (his first two words were “pen” and “paper”), had a photographic memory that he used to replicate the precise number of columns of the Pantheon in his panoramic sketch of Rome.
Stephen is endowed with a photographic memory that allows him to recall even the tiniest details and sketch them with a single glance.
