Born and raised in the Thai capital Bangkok, the photographer Withit Chanthamarit knows as well as anyone how political protests can paralyze that city at any minute. Although they are a familiar phenomenon, the motives of the demonstrators are sometimes difficult to comprehend. In his series Transplantation Chanthamarit records the activists while they are occupying parks, roads, bridges, government buildings, and even military bunkers.
