We present a method for face recognition by fitting a 3D Morphable Model to shape data. Fitting is done with a a robust nonrigid ICP algorithm. For recognition, it is possible to use either the fitted model parameters, or the correspondences induced by the model. We compare different similarity measures, and show that a 3D Morphable Model allows very robust retrieval results.
