In this paper, we aim to recover the 3D shape of a human face using a single image. We use a combination of symmetric shape from shading by Zhao and Chellappa and statistical approach for facial shape reconstruction by Atick, Griffin and Redlich. Given a single frontal image of a human face under a known directional illumination from a side, we represent the solution as a linear combination of basis shapes and recover the coefficients using a symmetry constraint on a facial shape and albedo.
