Patsy Cravens has many passions, connected like a string of Christmas lights.
Her book (her baby really) — Leavin' a Testimony: Portraits from Rural Texas — is only one of her passions. The book was published in 2006 but it was in the works long before.
In the 1980’s Patsy began interviewing and photographing the residents of Colorado County from an earlier generation. The end result? A labor of nothin’ but love.
