An image consists of a background and foreground. Usually, the foreground consists of the face which is our object of interest. Sometimes the face may not be clearly visible due to the presence of shadows by parts of the face obstructing the light. This creates a problem for face detection and recognition applications. This works aims to create a system which will detect the face in self shadow conditions i.e where the full face is not clearly visible and then present the complete face.
