Urban Legends by Jean-Yves Lemoigne is a stunning photo series with a beautiful message. Although the images may look like they are surreal for surreal's sake, there is actually a poignant purpose to the use of unicorn horns. The Paris-based photographer likens homeless individuals to these mythical creatures. By doing so, the photographer showcases his dream of a time when homelessness is nothing more than an urban legend.

Following men and women, young and old, Urban Legends by Jean-Yves Lemoigne shows that such sad circumstances should be a thing of the past. Realistically shot, the human-unicorn hybrids look like they are ready to go as well, waiting with bags packed to head on out. Ultimately, the creative shoot is both aesthetically pleasing and socially aware.
