Face recognition presents a challenging problem in the field of image analysis and computer vision. Face recognition system should be able to automatically detect a face in an image. This involves extracts its features and then recognize it, regardless of lighting, expression, illumination, ageing, transformations (translate, rotate and scale image) and pose, which is a difficult task. This paper presents a framework for component-based face alignment and representation that demonstrates improvement in matching performance over the more common holistic approach to face alignment and representation.
