When people change house, there are many items that get thrown out or left behind; 'Moving Day' is a stark reminder of all the pieces we've loved and left. Photographer Benoit Paillé has been able to evoke sad emotions through the pictures he has taken.

This collection focuses on furniture that has been left on the curb, either to be picked through or put in the trash. With the spotlight specifically on the furniture and the rest of the shot blocked out, all the attention is on those discarded pieces. This collection brings back memories of items most of us have left behind with little regard. Paillé is able to make us think of inanimate objects as though they are living and breathing. 'Moving Day' has successfully made its viewers think about common items in new ways.
