Lightroom Desktop: Filter by People

When filtering photos by "People" from the drop-down menu, if choosing more than one person, it seems only possible for that search to be "or", not "and". In other words, it doesn't seem possible to search for only photos that have two different people. What am I missing?

Not sure where you're doing this as there is no 'People' filter

I have the problem of boolean expressions in general. I want to create a filter based on an arbitrary well formed boolean expression (something LEX would recognize). I'm trying to clean up 180K pictures with oodles of duplicates, and seem to need to do it by hand!

Currently this functionality does not exist in Lightroom Desktop. 

A workaround would be search for Person A
Select all
Create temporary Album
Select Album
Search for Person B
