This is the famous "Mirrored Room" at the Knox-Albright Art Gallery. If you look closely, you can see:
-- a table and chair, which are covered with mirrors, like the walls
-- the hood around the camera that was used to take the picture.
To learn more about multiple reflections, visit Multiple Reflections, and also see the simulation Multiple Reflections from Two Plane Mirrors.
