"Chapter 1 - The Hierarchy of Images " is meant to be the first chapter of a comprehensive catalogue that critically engages with the cultural norms of documentary photography . 
It launches a new project series curated by Sabine Gamper and Nicoló Degiorgis at gallery foto-forum (Bolzano/Bozen, Italy) by presenting, over the course of two years, the work of outstanding exponents from the field.  
Through the photographic works of Joachim Schmid, Mishka Henner and Tobias Zilony, introduced respectively by Garry Badger, Marco Bohr and Seraphine Meya, the catalogue critically explores the issue of hierarchy within the manifold practice of contemporary documentary photography. 
Using the work of these three photographers, the curators aim to demonstrate how hierarchical structures intrinsic to documentary photography can be reflected in different ways by means of critical and sometimes subversive methodologies.
