Many techniques have been developed in computer vision to recover three-dimensional shape from two-dimensional images. These techniques impose various combinations of assumptions/restrictions of conditions to produce a representation of shape (e.g. surface normals or a height map). Although great progress has been made it is a problem which remains far from solved. In this thesis we propose a new approach to shape recovery - namely `mutual illumination photometric stereo'. We exploit the presence of colourful mutual illumination in an environment to recover the shape of objects from a single image.
