Richard Barnes
Richard Barnes, whose photographs accompany “Non-Lying: The Fourth Zen Precept," divides his time between commissioned work and personal projects. He has had numerous exhibitions in this country and abroad, including solo shows at the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, and the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego. He was the recipient of the Rome Prize in 2005 and the Julius Shulman Photography Award in 2011. His photographs from Rome formed the basis for his book and installation Animal Logic, two photographs from which appear in this issue. Barnes works on assignment for such publications as The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, and The New Yorker.

David Urubshurow
Shortly after Geshe Ngawang Wangyal, America’s first Buddhist master trained in Tibet, immigrated to New Jersey in 1955, 7-year-old David Urubshurow became his first disciple here. In “From Russia with Love: The Untold Story of how Tibetan Buddhism First Came to America," Urubshurow documents the story of his tiny community of Kalmyk Mongol refugees, who came to the Garden State from European refugee camps in 1952 and established the first Tibetan Buddhist congregation in America.

A 1980 graduate of the Antioch School of Law, Urubshurow is a trustee of the Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center, the cofounder of the US–Mongolia Business Council (now the North America–Mongolia Business Council), and a founding board member of the International Campaign for Tibet and the Institute for Asian Democracy. He served as Special Advisor to the government of Mongolia from 1990 to 1993.
