"...Roman, always in the open space, 'outside the mowers', loving to work from the free hand (without use of tripod). In his hand camera turns into a mobile point of observation, of feeling the mood and the light;  attacking  problems of a photographic plan with unconventional methods..." - so i.a. was written about him by prof. Michał Klis in the Catalogue to FF Exhibition 1997.

 Another prominent specialist, Juliusz Garztecki,  so defined the photographic output of Roman Hryciow in the introduction to catalogue of another solo exhibition of him:  "... This exhibition consists of a choice of more than ten years works in result of his devotion to photography. There is nothing much to expatiate because everybody who has seen any of his numerous individual exhibitions or any of his collective works immediately knows that Hryciow is a faultless photographer..."
