A Photographer Handed His Friends A Glass Of Wine (And This Is What Happened)

Marcos Alberti has been studying art since 1990, but a recent project’s focus has given him some Internet fame: wine.

The Wine Project began as a happy hour game between friends. They would all meet up after a hard day’s work, then Marcos would photograph his friends after they drank one, two, and three glasses of wine. He’d take the first photo as soon as they got to the studio, that way the stress of the commute and the workday was still on their faces.

As the pictures reveal, though, once glass #2 starts to hit…things get a little more fun.
