A digital presentation edited by Samara contains photos and words from Sonya Duus who has had a long connection to Bimblebox Nature Refuge.  Sonya has taken many beautiful photographs whilst at Bimblebox some of which are included in this exhibition.  Sonya’s photos and words are accompanied by ‘Bimblebox – a journey’, lyrics and music written, composed and recorded by Liz Mahood. This is a beautiful and powerful digital presentation which you will have to visit the gallery to experience.
