You can read the following,it details the proof which you require that how cross product result in the line containing them

Thanks waqar for useful reference.

So, in the figure in question, if e' and x' are represented in homogenous coordinates then their cross-product will represent a normal to the plane which passes through e',x' and origin (0,0,0) of homogenous coordinate system. And intersection between this plane and Z=W, where e'=(x1,y1,W) and x'=(x2,y2,W), will be the line l' hence l' can be represented as cross product of e' and x'.
