Alcoholic Anecdotes


Attempting to take an interview standpoint on people’s drinking stories and habits and condense them to images that show their story in an attempt to make a full image of how alcohol is shown in the totality of society. Highlighting both the good and the bad experiences that alcohol creates and the beliefs we have about it’s property. How different alcohol affects people, how many drinks one has in a week, worst and best drinking experiences, and whether drinking is an activity itself or an enhancer on other activities were all questions asked during the interview process to inspire my thesis.
