Photo match software?

PhotoRecognitionFilter: I'm looking for inexpensive (or ideally open source) image matching software that is relatively easy to build a website around (with some decent coding knowledge).

I have a concept for a site where people upload a photo of a face, and then the site would find pictures that are the closest matches from a database of other photos that I would upload, and then serve up the matches.
So for example, I upload a picture of a large person with certain facial features, it would spit back similar images from the database, but the original uploaded photo would not be amongst those matches returned.
Does any out-of-the-box solution like this even exist? I know a lot of science goes into matching facial features and body features but I haven't been able to find anything that is a packaged solution for purchase.
