Rinne Allen Portrait and Light Drawing


“Deciding to give myself permission to wander — without a set outcome, destination, or expectation — has been a turning point in my creative process and in my role as a mother of young children. It is now a vital part of my seasonal rhythm.”  – Rinne Allen for The Bitter Southerner 

Rinne Allen is a photographer, artist, and long-time Alabama Chanin friend, collaborator, and muse. She captures the beauty of the natural world in her hometown of Athens, Georgia, and travels to collaborate with and document writers, artists, designers, and makers through her images. Rinne is a delight to work with; her photographs can be found on the Alabama Chanin website and throughout our Journal. Her creative spirit is infectious, and she inspires to no end. In anticipation of Permission to Wander, an upcoming capsule collection in collaboration with Rinne (arriving soon), learn more about her and her ever-inspiring work.
