He sees something once and then draws it with startling accuracy.

Stephen Wiltshire MBE, Hon.FSAI, Hon.FSSAA is an autistic savant. In July 2014, Wiltshire took a helicopter ride and spent half an hour observing the Singapore skyline.

Back on the ground, he started to draw, each detail from memory, accurate and faithful to what he saw. It took five days to put on canvas what he recorded in his brain.
