There is no doubt we all look a little bit different after indulging in a few glasses of wine.
Maybe we relax our shoulders, maybe we begin to smile more, or maybe we start to giggle, our faces flushed with the rosey glow of a good rosé.
It is that transformation that Brazillian photographer Marcos Alberti wanted to capture.
Mr Alberti told Mamamia he initially started the photo series to show a different side of alcohol consumption to that usually portrayed in the media.
“I know that alcohol could be a bad thing,” he said. “But I think if you are surrounded by friends, in a good and happy environment, and with moderation, alcohol could be a good tool for celebration.”
So Mr Alberti invited a group of friends over to his studio.
“They came stressed by traffic and work,” he said. “When they arrive I made a first photo right away, I didn’t gave them time to interact with the environment, so I could capture the real stress.”
"Then I gave them the first glass."
When Alberti writes about the transformative powers of wine on his website, he says, "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 for myself if that affirmation was in fact true."
