Eating disorders and self worth and put under the spotlight in this socially revealing photo series by Brooklyn-based photographer Ji Yeo.

The 'Somewhere on the Path, I See You' project uses both women with extreme body issues who suffer from a distorted notion of beauty and aspiring actresses and models living in Hollywood who agreed to be photographed with dreams of getting noticed or famous.

The revealing photo series forces viewers and women to really understand how harshly women judge themselves and set themselves up to standards that make them feel like failures, which in turn affects their self-esteem and ideas of beauty and self-respect.

Yeo's series forces us to focus on our impulse to judge both ourselves and others when it comes to aesthetics.
