I am sure you have heard of Stephen Wiltshire, commonly known as the ‘Human Camera’. Wiltshire is able to draw the most complicated landscapes after just seeing them once. What is particularly intriguing is that he is autistic and that this is one of the many examples where a perceived ‘defect’ has positive outcomes. Wiltshire is able to draw very detailed pictures which have allowed him to become a famous artist. I thought it was interesting to find out that his primary school encouraged him to draw in order to express his emotions.
