It is still impossible to image the true black hole (again, that extreme gravity let us nothing escape) so the data being gathered is light from the material across the event horizon of the object – the”point of no return” of a black hole. What we’re seeing is the silhouette of a black hole.

Here is the first picture ever of a black hole. This one is in the middle for the M87 galaxy 53 million light years away.
