A photographer will publicise the right to take photographs without ‘harassment from police’ as part of Antony Gormley’s Fourth Plinth project in Trafalgar Square, London, this Sunday.

Steven ‘Spike’ Brown, from St Albans in Hertfordshire, has pledged to promote the photographers’ rights campaigns, launched separately by Amateur Photographer magazine and the British Journal of Photography.

He will carry an Amateur Photographer rights campaign placard with him during the hour-long session on 2 August.

Writing on Amateur Photographer‘s website forum Spike said: ‘If any forum members wish to come along and photograph me standing up for our rights? I shall be there from 10-11pm.’

The One & Other project, which began on 6 July, will see 2,400 people occupying the plinth for an hour each.

The Guardian newspaper says it plans to document the sculpture’s project ‘in its entirety’ until its conclusion on 14 October.

Built in 1841, the normally empty Fourth Plinth is now used for specially commissioned artworks.
