Although I am not really a big football fan, other than cheering for the home team, I have been a follower of the NFL Instagram feed all season. These little square photographs that look like poloroids, faded with filters and framed with rough borders, have been given a special vintage quality that harken back to those early Sports Illustrated days. But it is also the image itself that is different. It is not the big play that is captured but something more intimate and almost innocent, as if the NFL were a high school football game.
So with the Super Bowl just a few days away and only 2 NFL teams left on the playing field, I thought I would share some of my visual highlights from the season.
