While living in the United States, Jinwoo Lee (Artist Name: Hwon Lee) actively publishes his work through books, magazines, literary publications and art festivals in Korea. Lee's work also has been exhibited in United States, South Korea and China. Curator Mary Stanley selected Lee as one of the "Note-worthy up and coming photographers under 35" and curated his work in the exhibition <On the Verge> at APG Gallery. Lee also received the honor of the Excellent Book of the Year Award from Arts Council Association of Korea for his photo poetry book, 『Let Us Not Be Too Desperate』(ISBN : 9791158964009). In the book, Lee presented poems in form of images as well as images mixed with texts. Lee terms such way of working: "Poem-ography". Lee’s recently published photo essay book, 『When Your Gaze and My Gaze Move Into Opposite Directions』(ISBN: 9788965707998) (2019), is quintessential Poem-ography. In the series, the artist anthropomorphizes objects, creating 120 images taken from their imagined perspectives. Prose at the end of each photo invites viewers to gaze at them from the opposite end. Lee is continuing to expand on the Poem-ography series. He published them on several magazines and is publishing a new work bi-monthly on Paper Magazine,
