In Gardens, Garages and Garbage Cans, Sloane extends the traditional notion of portraiture to make a different kind of picture in her own neighborhood.  She photographs gardens in makeshift pots and containers in front of old Victorian buildings and small apartment houses as well as inside auto body garages that proliferate in an area just east of Lake Merritt; a locale known for its vibrant diversity of immigrants and bustling small businesses.  Its a neighborhood that on the surface appears shabby, but Sloane with this series of photographs, captures the beauty and spirit of a community. She gives the viewer a glimpse into a world that at first glance is a gritty concrete jungle but whose inhabitants see beauty in the unexpected and banal.  In the words of the artist, these are photographs of gardens that proclaim “someone lives here, works there, who loves life and values beauty.”
