Photographer Marcos Alberti
Wine fans will undoubtedly appreciate this fun photo project which captures how faces change when alcohol has been consumed.
Brazilian photographer Marcos Alberti captured friends when they had drunk one, two and three glasses of wine and these are the amazing results.
Started As A Joke
He explains how his 3 Glasses project started as a joke with his friends, with the first images capturing the stress and fatigue after a full day’s work.
The artist said he was inspired to combine his passions of socialising, photography and wine for the project.
Like portraits during happy hour
“There is a saying about wine that I really like and it’s something like this, ‘The first glass of wine is all about the food, the second glass is about love and the third glass is about mayhem’. I really wanted to see for myself if that affirmation was in fact true,” he said.
He added: “I started this project because if you search for alcohol on the internet you only can find bad stuff about it. I wanted to show the good side of it – of course, between friends who are drinking responsibly in a good environment. It’s like portraits during happy hour.”
His subjects visibly become more relaxed after each photo, with some seemingly better able to handle their alcohol than others.
“At the end of every glass of wine I took a snapshot, nothing fancy, a face and a wall, 3 times,” he said.
Smiles Emerged and Stories Were Told
“People from all walks of life … music, art, fashion, dance, architecture, advertising got together for a couple of nights and by the end of the third glass several smiles emerged and many stories were told.”
