No one has a photographic memory. This is only a myth perpetrated by magicians and charlatans.

However, a few people do have something called an Eidetic memory because of which they are able to recall in fine detail, images, sounds and objects to which they have been exposed to for a brief amount of time.

Another related condition is Hyperthymesia in which people can recollect events from their personal lives in minute detail.
