See Note 1 in the "Here’s what iCloud Backup includes" section of:

What does iCloud back up? - Apple Support


If you are not using iCloud Photo library and want to recover your photos from the iCloud backup, see:

Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from a backup - Apple Support

Be aware that restore is an all or nothing process. You cannot only restore photos (for example) and any information on your device between now and when the backup was made will be lost.


If you are using iCloud Photo Library, the photos should already be on your device (and in iCloud):
