Vicky Hodgson is a British photographer whose practice investigates the relationship between photography, self-portraiture, and performance to explore the representation and social construction of her ageing female body. By using her own body, her images disrupt moments in her life that contributed to the prejudice of sexism and ageism she now experiences. Drawing on the emotions and feelings emerging from these encounters, family album photographs and lived experiences, these self-portraits present a personal portrayal of ageing.

Her practice-based PhD, A Personal Performance of Ageing: Using Photography to Challenge the Social Construction of the Older Woman's Body, is near completion. The supervisors of her research are Prof Anna Fox, University for the Creative Arts, and Prof Estella Tincknell, University of the West of England.
