Alex Baker’s Photographic Memory

Alex Baker, an 11-year-old boy with autism, has a photographic memory that allows him to reproduce a skyline or aerial cityscape after visiting a city, or seeing it in a book, just once. His perspective sketches include London, Paris, New York, and many other cities.

“I took Alex to London when he was five and we were only there for the day, but he came home and drew all the London Underground system in detail,” said his mother, Laura Jackson.

Amazing.
