The photographic process is not perfect but its purpose is to obtain an exact representation of the scene as the photographic capability allows.

No, no it is not repeat it all you wish but that does not make it true. Photography is making an image by recording light. That is it, full stop.

Shining a flashlight on photosensitive paper will not make it photography.

The point is 'an exact representation of the scene as the photographic capability allows.' is not the definition of photography.

You are correct about that. I have never seen that definition.

The photographic process is deciding what to record, from where, at what time, with what lens, using what shutter speed and aperture, processing that image and deciding on display mediums

The idea that a photograph captures reality is a distortion of reality.
