A new book by Japanese photographer Takao Ochi called "Setsudan Venus" ("Amputated Venus") features pictures of 11 women -- models, athletes and business employees -- with prosthetic legs. All are patients of prosthetist Fumio Usui, who makes artificial limbs for Paralympic athletes and other competitors. "The models all feel very comfortable and proud of their prosthetic legs. That positive attitude changes how others view those women," said Ochi.
