Converse X Black Magazine - A Classic Reborn

Next up! Nicole Brannen

30 July 2018


Black Magazine continue to bring the much anticipated Converse One Star sneaker to life. This week, we spend time with budding young photographer, Nicole Brannen.




What do you do, your passions in life?

I am a full time human, part time photographer.


Music you love?

I have a ridiculously broad taste in music, I'm into a whole lot of different genres! At the moment I've been listening to a lot of The Pixies, Joy Division, Pond, DIIV, The Velvet Underground, King Krule and 2000's house music, ha,ha!


What was the last film you watched and enjoyed?

The last film I watched was Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', it gets me every time. It has practically no dialogue in it and the animation is super ahead of its time. I would recommend it to everyone!


What does the world need more of?

More trees, positivity and cheap film.


What does the world need less of?

Less screens!


What hopes/plans do you have for the future?

My plans for the future are pretty free flowing, I hope to continue to do what I love whole heartedly whilst travelling and experiencing as much of the world as I can. Wish me luck!
