William Hatch Crosby is an Illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. I came across when browsing on Pinterest – I had his work pinned to my Collage/Mixed Media board from a long time ago and was reminded of these images when faced with the project Self Portrait. As a potential outcome for this project was a series of collages, I wanted to look at photographs and how one can manipulate portraits for inspiration. William Hatch Crosby makes these marks on photographs – so simple yet it results in such a striking series. The series I’ve been looking at (I’m not too fond of his other work) is called Legends.
