    I wanted the overall concept to be one of the family tree variety, and thought playing cards representing royal figures expressed this point well. I've always thought royals to be sort of creepy dusty old relics that maintain military hierarchy like titles but in a family setting. I let my mind flow into this photo with the concept in mind. I put tree elements all over this, but the most important to me is the film it is shot on. I make film for a living, and it comes from trees (cellulose).

    This is totally different than any other submission I have seen for this assignment and I love that I can read into this picture on many different levels. I also get a bit uncomfortable when looking at this image.
