abbey crain

Abbey Crain is a deep South native with a penchant for East Coast melancholy. She has lived in Brooklyn, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa and is dedicated to women in the South and how they relate to the national conversation of third-wave feminism.

Currently she lives in Birmingham with her husband and two cats. She is an artist and award-winning journalist featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and Longreads. Here at Ragged you can find her latest cultural musings, reporting, and street style photography, which she never stopped loving despite her streets constantly changing from the steps below Bryant Denny Stadium, to Bleeker, and then downtown Birmingham.

Abbey aspires to one day keep her house plants alive for longer than two months.
