Pavel Matela's 'Hatching Out' is a series of six photographs from 6x9 cm negatives, which have been scanned and are printed on a single sheet of paper.

Author: Hatching Out developed from the strong momentum I felt when I was closing one chapter of my life/work and opening another. At the time I felt an inner strength with which I did not know what to do with, and I felt that something inside me must be different. The series actually took several days of work to create. In the aesthetic I paid tribute to the tradition of classic black-and-white photography, while at the same time the piece is also my own symbolic departure from this style.

Todd: Matela's photograph shows a new creation myth offering a different possibility for human natural history. It's a story of intelligent life that perhaps developed from birds or dinosaurs instead of from monkeys. Awkward humans emerging fully-developed but seemingly afraid and alone from their large egg-sacs. Moments later the creature runs out of the frame to fend for itself. The humor of this story makes me laugh, but beneath that joke there's a philosophical examination of the human experience...  read more of my thoughts about it on our blog, here.

Honza: To me, "Hatching out" seems like something out of a textbook on the history of photography. The classical processing and this odd action, depicting a very alien way for a human life to begin, make it an ideal photo to open "Human's Bodies," our second thematic portfolio.
