About


Placecloud publishes microdocumentaries of place.

Scholars, writers and other interesting people use their smartphones to make very short documentaries about specific places. These places are the opposite of landmarks: they're the seemingly anonymous places that surround our everyday lives. Placecloud reveals that no place is truly anonymous. Every place is touched by human culture.

Placecloud enables scholars, writers and other kinds of storyteller across the world to share their visions of specific places.

Placecloud reveals the world's 'inner geography'.
