I'm not sure if photographic memory as such is actually recognised
as a phenomenon, if by that you mean actual ability to preserve visual
images in memory accurately and easily.
I heard anecdotally about a subject in Russia who was able to work out
the image in a random dot stereogram when shown the 2 images separately,
which sounds like literal photographic memory, though I'm not sure about
how good the research was.
