Mark Winthrop Hashman


Mark Hashman was born in Palo Alto, California, but has lived his entire life since in Colorado. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Mark has worked hard to reconcile his unique perspective of the world with his place in that world, and found the arts as a sanctuary and an outlet – a conduit to bring out the universes within his head, worlds that he could visit only in his dreams. Honing his literary abilities over 20 years and practicing the visual arts, he attempted to pursue numerous arts degrees – Animation, Digital Design, Painting & Drawing – before falling into Photography by pure chance and discovering a knack for the techniques. Even after graduation, the creative arts will always have a place in Mark’s life.
