Photography is taking photos, what device is used doesn't matter.

Yes, but some devices are more rewarding to use than others. That matters a lot to me.

Photography is indeed about taking photos but it's equally about researching the best affordable camera that fits your needs, getting pleasure from handling appreciating, and using a well designed manufactured item of engineering. If the device didn't matter, we would all be using cheap plastic disposable cameras.

Not that bothered about the aesthetics, to me its the places I take the photos that matters.
For example everyone goes on about the Pen F, personally prefer the more functional Panasonic equivalent.

No right or wrong way, more about what does it for you
