In this paper, we propose a new method for computerized human face recognition using fractal transformations. We show that by utilizing the intrinsic properties of block-wise self-similar transformations in fractal image coding we can use it to perform face recognition. The contractivity factor and the encoding scheme of the fractal encoder are shown to affect recognition rates. Using this method, an average error rate of 1.75% was obtained on the ORL face database
