“A Day in My Shoes” Amy Martin-Friedman The photographic portraits by Amy Martin-Friedman present the essence of Women by uniquely framing a moment in life signified by their shoes.  The “A Day in My Shoes” book expands the discourse by sharing personal stories of courage and strength along with the photography.  Moving and poignant, Martin-Friedman’s features portraits of the current class of Safe Passage Women, VIP’s and celebrities.  Seeking a Charity organization for which to donate her art and services  Martin-Friedman found Safe Passage through Google.  After contacting Founder Trish Steele, Safe Passage supporters commissioned portraits as well as sponsored portraits for the Women in the Safe Passage program, Stepping Stones to a New Life. These photographs were exhibited and the book (in which they are also featured) debuted at the 2011 “A Day in My Shoes” event.

In providing extreme life makeovers empowering women leaving abusive relationships, Safe Passage educates, councils, clothes, finds housing and employment, builds self love and confidence and even arranges restorative surgical services through the generous donation of highly skilled doctors from: “The Doctors” show: Dr. Drew Ordon, Dr. William Dorfman DDS, from Beverly Hills Dr. Rita Chopra and Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour, Bruce Vafa DDS and Dr. John Vartanian.

http://www.martinfriedmanphotography.com/ “A Day in My Shoes – LA Coffee Table Book”  Amy Martin-Friedman comments: “This is my 5th LA coffee table book and my 9th A Day In My Shoes series.  I've helped domestic violence shelters/survivors, breast cancer survivors and most recently an LA animal rescue org.  I'm working on NYC, Dallas and just announced this month Cayman Island Crisis Center.”  “A Day in My Shoes – LA is about women helping women. Each woman is photographed anonymously in her favorite pair of shoes. She then shares her personal story of triumph, which is included next to her photograph on her page in the “A Day in My Life” book.  Every woman has a story to tell and “A Day in My Shoes” serves to shed light on these stories by featuring real woman telling how they overcame obstacles in life, reached career goals, or escaped a domestic violence relationship. It honors all women and reminds them that they are beautiful and courageous.
