Marcos Alberti is a talented self taught Brazilian photographer, graphic designer and architect, who started with music, painting, sculptures and design. For his “Wine Project”, Marcos snapped photos of his friends when they were sober — and then again after one, two, and finally three glasses of wine.

I wanted to show the good side of alcohol because everybody always shows the dark side of it. It means, in a good environment, with friends, with moderation, alcohol could be a good tool for celebration. They all became relaxed, start to laugh more, even the shy guys become comfortable in front of my camera, most of them are not used to being in front of a camera.

3 Glasses after started as a joke like a game after hours but a serious work with a good humorous vibe ,the first picture was taken right away when our guests have 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. 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. 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.
