I disagree with you (doesn't happen often) on the political nature of photography.

Any choice that you make that can effect other people is political (at least in potential).

Yes, you can pursue beauty as an abstract. But you still exist within a society where your choices matter. If you spend $1000 on a camera, that's money that you could have spent building a wall or a bridge. If you ask a woman to take her clothes off (to pursue beauty, of course), there's a power dynamic.

It is put well in this article https://fstoppers.com/originals/your-photography-political-166050
