The Living Camera

Stephen Wiltshire from London is a young savant who can draw aerial views of cities with amazing accuracy. Stephen is autistic and did not speak his first words, "pencil" and "paper", until he was five years old. When he was eleven, he drew a perfect aerial view of London after only one helicopter ride. This film tests the "Living camera" in Rome. After a brief helicopter ride, Stephen drew an almost perfect blueprint of the historic city on five and a half yards of paper in only three days. His gift is simply astonishing. After watching this video, a friend, Carol Anderson writes, "God doesn't make mistakes. His mind is as God wanted it to be. It is up to the rest of us to accept who he is and learn from his presence among us. Thanks for sharing this amazing video." Watch this and eight other inspiring videos of Stephen using his gift here on YouTube: Stephen Wiltshire, The Living Camera.
