Photographer Captures How People Change After Three Glasses of Wine

The visual explanation of wine-wasted.

Better than any nature soundtrack or scented candle, we all know a big glass of wine is the best way to unwind after a long day.

Photographer Marco Alberti must be well-versed in the effects of wine’s liquid relaxation abilities. His latest project, “3 Glasses Later“, is a photo series that shows a person’s progression over three glasses of wine.

Alberti took photos of his subjects as they arrived at the studio, then a photo after one, two and three glasses of wine. Alberti explains:

“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.”

Take a look at 10 of of our favourites below and check out all 53 photos here.

Wine makes him a little silly.

Alberti says on his website,

“By the end of the third glass, several smiles emerged and many stories were told.”

And I think we know it all too well.
