BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RosettaBooks announced the publication of MG, a stunning collection of images showcasing ballet and jazz veteran Marjorie Goodson set against landmarks throughout Los Angeles. The photographs, by Andreea Radutoiu, reveal Goodson, 54, as a sensual, fit woman who uses her body to create visual and physical art. The limited-edition book, which includes 153 images rich in texture and tone, is available for pre-sale purchase on major book e-tailers and will be available in select bookstores on April 11.
"Dancing is my need, my want, my strength, my desire, my energy, my pleasure and my pain," says Goodson, who spent nearly three years working on the project.
Goodson's physique, achieved through years of practice, diet and daily exercise, show a woman in her prime: physically, mentally and spiritually. It was that achievement that inspired MG -- a collection of gritty, sensual and playful dance images that reveal Goodson's provocative and daring nature as an artist. Weaving edgy, raw and dramatic concepts into classical and contemporary movement, MG not only pushes the creative envelope but also breaks down stigmas and taboos, adhering to the notion that one's passion, empowerment and self-esteem are accessible at any age. She hopes the book convinces like-age and minded readers to embrace and fulfill their own lives, needs and desires.
Goodson worked closely with photographer Andreea Radutoiu and hair and makeup stylist Torsten Witte. Together they helped produce gallery-worthy images using Los Angeles as a backdrop. "We wanted locations that were architectural, gritty and edgy, and graphically stark and clean like their studio shots. Incorporating earthy and textural elements like the beaches, water, rocks and sand was necessary for visual balance," Goodson says.
Author Marjorie Goodson, a New York native, began dancing at the age of eight at the prestigious School of American Ballet, sparking an enduring love of ballet that would fuel her for the rest of her life. Raised around the television industry by her father, Mark Goodson, famed game show producer of such shows as Family Feud and The Price is Right, Goodson moved to California in her 20s to pursue a career in acting and dancing. In 1986, she joined forces with Alex Trebek on her father's game show Classic Concentration and remained there for the next five and a half years. In 1993, with the birth of her first child, Hannah, Goodson decided to postpone a career in television for a career as a mother. Her passion for dance never diminished.
