Hello again! I mentioned that I went to Pasaquan last year during the fall semester at Columbus State University. It was on a beautiful Friday, fall day on October 15 (I could have my dates wrong).
Pasaquan is a 7-acre compound near Buena Vista, Georgia and was created by Eddie Owens Martin, an eccentric folk artist who lived a very colorful life. He called himself St. EOM.
Pasaquan is a colorful utopia of African, pre-Columbian Mexico and Native American cultural and religious symbols and designs, with motifs inspired by St. EOM. Here are some photos and videos that I took during my time there.
That’s St. EOM himself in the middle photo.

I have more photos to share with y’all later. I hope you like the photos and videos that I took of my time there. More information about Pasaquan in the next few weeks.
