Vikings Instagram Group Explores Buffalo, NY

The Vikings Instagram Group presented by PrimeSport is back for the 2017 season in Buffalo as the Vikings are set to open up the preseason at New Era Field against the Bills Thursday night.

Verizon Vikings Training Camp officially came to a close in Mankato this week, signaling the arrival of preseason.

As the Minnesota Vikings look toward another busy season of traveling both domestically and internationally, we've decided to bring back Vikings Instagram Group for its sophomore season. Minnesota fans might recall seeing images*featuring the iconic Vikings helmet in cities like Nashville, Philadelphia and Chicago* during road games last season.

The goal of the Vikings Instagram Group is to showcase the most unique qualities of the team's road game stops through the use of photography. The catch? V.I.G. representatives were asked to use a Vikings helmet, of course. This year's schedule includes cities such as London, Atlanta and Pittsburgh. 

Travel this preseason jump starts in Buffalo, the second-most populous city in the state of New York. As the team prepares for a 6 p.m. (CT) kickoff against the Bills, we partnered with Stephanie Dubin of artiswhy.com to explore the city of Buffalo in a different way.

Get to know Stephanie and her city a bit more with the below Q&A:

Q: What's your Instagram handle? Tell us more about what you like to shoot.

A: @artiswhy. I love trying to come up with creative ways to shoot products, people, places and spaces. I also love how photography captures moments in time, so I enjoy documenting impermanent things like street art and candid moments.

Q: Give us an explanation of what you photographed in Buffalo and why.

A: I wanted to pay homage to some of the things Buffalo is known for – being a sports town, home of the original Buffalo chicken wings, and being a rustbelt city with so much rich history and architecture.

Q: Have you ever been to Minnesota? If so, where? If not, do you plan to visit someday?

A: I have not yet been to Minnesota, but I might visit someday, you never know.

Q: Share one thing about Buffalo, New York, that many people wouldn't know.

A: We only have four months of really nice summer weather, so there is something to do every single week and weekend throughout our entire summer. No excuses for boredom. In fact, you won't be able to catch everything you want due to overlapping events!

Q: What was your favorite part about contributing to the Vikings Instagram Group?

A: Another challenge to represent Buffalo in my own way.
