I see that you are attempting to restore your iPhone from an iCloud backup but it doesn't seem to restore your images. It sounds like during this process you'll still see "restoring media" but don't notice any activity. Although not seeing anything on your display, in most cases your media is still being restore. It's important to allow the restore to take time to complete.
Also, for the images you want to see, are you able to view them when you go to www.icloud.com from a computer?
Check out this link regarding what to expect when you restore from an iCloud back up.
If iCloud Backup couldn’t be completed or you can’t restore
If the restore process takes a long time to finish
Stay connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network and a functional power source until the process finishes. The time it takes to restore from a backup depends on the size of your backup and the speed of your Wi-Fi network.
