Gab Mejia (he/they) is a queer Filipino photographer, multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, and environmental engineer.

Born and raised by the Philippine archipelago, he explores and weaves the different fabrics of visual storytelling, environmental design, and ecology through the arts, photography, poetics, and participatory research. His work focuses on the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, indigenous knowledge, cosmologies, and cultural interconnections to confront our socio-political and ecological crises.

Mejia is a National Geographic Explorer, Climate Pledge Global Storyteller, Fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers, 2019 Jackson Wild Media Lab Fellow, and has published stories and research in National Geographic, BBC, CNN, Art Partner, Vogue, United Nations, Manila Times, Fotografiska Shanghai, Photo London, TEDx talks among other local and global publications, exhibitions, panels, and science agoras.

He currently resides as a Board of Trustee for the World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines working on natural and cultural heritage conservation in the Philippines. He continues to explore the plurality of narratives, identities, and depictions of nature through mythopoetics and speculative documentary— hoping to gain a deeper understanding of our shared yet fraught relationship with the environment and ourselves.
