First Light is a suite of twenty prints of James Turrell's projected-light installations from 1966–67. The portfolio is divided into five subsets, each of which pictures a single shape of light (square, triangle, rectangle, etc.) projected against a wall where the rays meet in corners creating a sense of contrast, dimension and 3D shape. Turrell is a master printer known for his use of the medium aquatint, which works in tones rather than lines. This work is technical perfection of the use of aquatint and is considered by the artist his most important printmaking project.
