From Blake Andrews’ article for Collector Daily:
Together these two publications feel like something of a throwback to an earlier era and also to earlier photo archives. They are also overt homages to an earlier life, that of the late Ken Graves. He is memorialized briefly at the end of each book. It’s Restraint & Desire which has the slightly more expansive note. “I will forever be grateful to him for his love and generosity,” writes Lipman, “his unfailing optimism, and for sharing with me his strange and unique worldview. . . I miss him everyday.” One suspects he would be proud and happy with these tandem publications, a fitting symbol of his lifelong partnership with Lipman.
