In the hook_theme_suggestions_HOOK_alter the $variables contain only informations about the theme of entity in this case theme image:
From documentation:

array $variables: An array of variables passed to the theme hook. Note that this hook is invoked before any preprocessing.

if you look at image_theme you can find all variables passed uri, title ...

So to access node related info you can use route params like the following.

 * Implements hook_theme_suggestions_HOOK_alter().
function THEME_theme_suggestions_image_alter(array &$suggestions, array $variables) {
  $node = \Drupal::routeMatch()->getParameter('node');
  $suggestions [] = "image__" . $node->bundle();

Note: you can't access to View mode in this hook because it's not in the $variables and also the current view mode is not stored in the node object

Take a look at this issue Make the current view mode available on the node object

  • Will this work when you're displaying a node somewhere other than the canonical node route?
