Yesterday I was trying to help my daughter find some good photos of herself from my Lightroom catalog. I went to "All Photographs", clicked the little People icon in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, and got a page of tiles for recognized people. There were almost 2,000 photos of my daughter. I double-clicked on the tile representing the collection of her photos, and got a screen of confirmed photos of her. Each thumbnail is a close-up of the part of the photo with her face, so naturally she wanted to see the entire photo. Double-clicking on any thumbnail would take us to the loupe view of the photo.

That's great, and exactly what I wanted. But how do I get back to the grid of close-up thumbnails? I searched for some sort of "back" button, but could find nothing. We found ourselves having to go back to the top-level people view, then selecting her, then having to scroll down to where we had left off. With 2,000 photos, that got kind of old.
