Brazilian photographer creates a unique experience among friends. Marcos Alberti
decided to put together some of his passions in this project, friends, photography, wine and also a good old talk. 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 says Marcos about his latest project. 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.

" I am a Cardiff based illustrator, specializing in fairy tales, gender conflict, the uncanny, the monstrous-feminine and morality. I create visual narratives that are inspired by the darkness within the real world, using poetic metaphors and uncanny motifs through paintings, installations, books, films and puppetry to help beguile, enchant and illuminate. Ultimately, I seek to inspire and encourage people to question the mistakes of our world and adopt wiser moral judgment, through use of cautionary tales and uncanny punishment." - Layla Holzer
