The summer 2013 issue of Aperture, the second featuring the magazine's dramatic reconceptualization and redesign, is organized around the theme of "Curiosity." Contributors examine photography's relationship to such subjects as exploration, scientific discovery, and ways of seeing. The desire to lay bare the unknown is perpetual, and the issue features photographic investigations from the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. Yet, whether the realm is art or science, photography may lead not to answers but to further questions. As curator Joel Smith notes, photographs can "doubt as well as certify, negate as well as indicate, embody absence as well as substance."
