Claudiu Popescu – Are you drunk?

I met Claudiu on a photography forum and I really wanted to see a portfolio of his works, nicely organized on a website. So he recently launched some very interesting stories on I proudly helped him with this featured project as the club where these photos were taken is one of my favorites, too.

• 2 Beers, 2 Screwdrivers with Apple Juice and 1 Jagermeister with Red Bull •

You’re in the club, it’s way past midnight, you’re having fun (or not), and the level of alcohol in your body is putting you in an unbearable state of excitement (or not). Ever wondered what your face looks like at that particular moment?

Photos are taken against the wall at the entrance to Club Control, in Bucharest. After photographing them, I asked every subject the same three questions: “what’s your name?”, “what do you do for a living?”, “how much did you drink tonight?”. Make it a poll, a joke, a statistic, or just a collection of portraits, the following pictures are what resulted from the experiment.
