A series of photshopped images from the Thai Politics III book by documentary photographer and visual artist Miti Ruangkritya, all collected from the Thaksin where are you? Facebook group.
Launched in 2010, during an intense period of political speculation, the group wanted to find out the whereabouts of the fugitive and former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Thaksin was satirized and ridiculed within the group as participants added an images of him in a wide variety of humorous scenes. The group no longer exists.
