# Would someone be able to see where they are headed once they crossed the event horizon? [duplicate]

Let us say an explorer was studying a supermassive black hole and ended up blundering past the event horizon. From my understanding, which may be wrong, the only paths allowed after crossing the event horizon are paths that bring the object closer to the singularity. Therefore, if the hapless explorer faced the direction of travel, would none of the photons ahead of the explorer be able to reach the explorer's eyes?
