“My name is Corbin Heinchon and I have been the editor for LView for the past three years. Working with Yelena and Tim has been nothing but amazing, and watching their show grow into what it is today has been inspiring. I started working with them because I admired their work with the disabled and otherwise marginalized communities, and the show has never lost sight of those values. Art can only survive if people know about it, and highlighting people and groups that are far too often forgotten about is central to what art is, and that is what LView provides, a space for sometimes overlooked people and groups to really showcase their work.” - Corbin Heinchon, Chief Editor
