I spotted these 3 dimensional photographic paper portrait heads and sculptures by artist Bert Simons over at Bored Panda, so I dove a little deeper and found some more on the artist's web site.
Using multiple points on a model's face and head, Bert inputs the data into the computer and uses Blender, an open source 3D program to construct a three dimensional model of the head. He then flattens the image to 2D pieces and prints them out on paper stock, only to rebuild them as a purposely piecemeal modeled head.

In addition to some self-portraits, he has created versions of other men and women, an anatomical head and a three step head which represents vegetative growth.
