What started out as a joke among photographer Marcos Alberti's friends turned into a photo project.
There's nothing quite like signing off an exhausting day with a glass of wine. Of course, no one stops at one glass of wine. You have a couple of glasses and take in the buzz. Photographer Marcos Alberti loved hanging out with his friends and having a drink. The only thing he possibly loved more was clicking pictures of them. As he watched his friends unwind and have fun, he joked that he should take pictures of them before and after having a drink. The idea caught hold and he decided to go through with it and called his friends over to his studio for a drink. He had mapped out the idea and decided to take four pictures to capture the progress of the buzz from having a drink.
"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 it for myself if that affirmation was in fact true," said Marcos about the Wine Project. "The first picture was taken right away when our guests (had) just arrived at the studio in order to capture the stress and the fatigue after a full day after working all day long and from also facing rush hour traffic to get here," said Alberti, who's from Brazil. "Only then fun time and my project could begin. At the end of every glass of wine, a snapshot, nothing fancy, a face and a wall, 3 times."
He invited people from all walks of life including music, art, fashion, dance, architecture and advertising among other things. The results were shared on Imgur and the results are amazing, and they had a blast doing the project as well. Here are some of the images from the 'Wine Project':
