These Portraits of People After 1, 2, and 3 Drinks Will Be the Best Thing You Witness Today

Every photo tells a story and for Marcos Alberti's project "3 Glasses Later," it's how people reacted in front of the camera after drinking three glasses of wine.

"There is a saying about wine that I really like and it's something like this," he said. "'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."

Marcos kicked off the photo series by inviting his friends over to drink and mingle after a long work day. The photographer would snap an initial photo of his sober guests, followed by a photo after every drink.

"Nothing fancy, a face and a wall, 3 times," he said.

Through this amazing idea, Marcos was able to create stunning portraits of each of his guests in their different stages of alcohol consumption. Almost everyone had the same expressions in their first photos, but you can really see each person's joie de vivre by their second or third drink. These snaps will remind you that sometimes you just have to slow down, have a glass of wine (or two), and surround yourself with good company.
