After consuming several glasses of wine, we all know that things can get a little fuzzy and we can get a bit distracted from reality. In some instances, the serotonin boosts, and the merrymaking effects of alcoholic beverages can be a little too obvious. Marcos Alberti, a photographer from Brazil, has come up with a method of conserving and recording the positive effects of wine, an alcoholic beverage loved by many people. This project, which was originally started as a joking experiment, is titled 3 Glasses Later.
To conduct this unique and interesting project, Alberti invited some of his friends to his apartment to have a fun time. On the day of the happy hour, he first photographed them as soon as they arrived. In these initial photographs, the fatigue they felt from working the whole day and rushing to arrive at Alberti’s home during traffic hours was clearly reflected. After that, he let them drink one, two, and three glasses of wine, photographing how their moods and mannerisms changed after each glass.
As he states on his website, the compositions are “nothing fancy–a face and a wall, three times”. However, the close-up shots taken against a simple backdrop effectively highlight the raw and authentic emotions felt by the subject. Despite their personal preferences, styles, and careers, the models convey the universal response of people to some buzz, sparking more and more joy and relaxation with each glass. So, check out the photos below and share your thoughts with us in the comments!
