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. Stats for Homeless Unicorn Photography Trending: Older & Mild
